The Language Kit for Primary Schools is a comprehensive toolkit for teachers, SENCOs and teaching assistants who deliver group interventions in order to support language and communication in schools. Key features of the kit include: * suggested strategies with clear guidelines to help practitioners to support spoken language difficulties * detailed instructions describing how to run and deliver language groups to maximize effectiveness * two intervention programmes including session plans, structured activities and photocopiable handouts, ensuring that everything necessary to run the group is in one place. Programmes are a ten week programme for use with Key Stage 1 pupils. This may also be used with Foundation Stage children; a ten week programme for use with Key Stage 2 pupils. This may also be used with Key Stage 3 students; suggestions for simplifying or extending every activity, enabling the practitioner to differentiate and meet the needs of everyone in the group; an additional resource bank and activity ideas to allow further development of language groups.
Written in a clear and concise style by a Speech and Language Therapist and a Specialist teacher of Speech, Language and Communication, this resource will allow practitioners to give pupils the best possible language support.
