Speech and language difficulties are the most common developmental problem encountered in the primary classroom, yet identifying the children who are affected can seem a complex and difficult process. Jane Speake, an experienced speech and language therapist, cuts through the jargon and terminology to provide a clear guide for the class teacher.

Sections include:

  • a rough guide to various types of speech and language difficulty and the terminology used;
  • how to identify a child with difficulties, and when to refer to speech and language therapy for assessment;
  • the Afasic* checklists for easy identification and profiling for the non-specialist teacher the different roles of teachers, health service professionals and parents.

Illuminating and packed with practical ideas, this book provides a valuable reference and source of advice for every primary class teacher.
