Communication and Interaction
All of our children experience some challenges with communication and there are lots of ways in which we support the development of this within school. We are supported by the Speech and Language Therapy Service who work with the children and Kingsbury staff to help us provide the optimum environment in which children can develop their skills.
At Kingsbury we use a Total Communication approach which basically means that we utilise different methods of communication to support each individual child as fully as possible. Listed below are just a few of the different approaches used but staff will discuss with you what is most appropriate for your individual child’s needs. Whatever approach is decided upon, spoken language at an appropriate level for each individual is always used. Here we outline some of the ways in which we support communication development in school. This list is not exhaustive, and it may be that other methods are used to support your child. Our commitment to working with parents to ensure the best outcomes means that we will always talk to you about the most appropriate ways to support your child.
