Speech and Language

Worcestershire Speech and Language Therapists have a wealth of resources to help at home and school.

NEW!! – The Speech and Language Therapy Service have been very busy making some wonderful visuals and tasks to support transition:
  • My School Clothes – a task to help children who are new to the school to know what they will be wearing
  • My Lunchbox – an activity that will help your child plan with you what their packed lunch might include
  • My New School Hunt –  for children who are new to our school here is a set of things to look out for in school
  • Transition Questions – These may be some of the questions your children might wonder about prior to their return.
  • Who? Where? When? What? questions to help prepare your child for transition into school in September

Here are some resources created by Worcestershire speech to help you to deal with children’s worries about coronavirus.
