“What’s really innovative about the WellComm Primary toolkit is that you don’t need any specific speech and language expertise to use it – you just pick it up and go!”Janette Newbon, Language Champion, Oakfield Primary School in Rugby
One child who joined us in Year 2 had attended several schools previously and they reported that he had social and behavioural difficulties. When he joined us, he was screened with WellComm Primary and we were able to identify that he was two years behind in his speech and language development. We believed this was the root cause for his other issues. He is now following a programme of interventions from WellComm's Big Book of Ideas and is doing really well. He is due to be screened again shortly and we anticipate he will have made good progress.
As WellComm Primary includes the screening test, score sheets and follow up guidance and interventions in The Big Book of Ideas it offers really good value for money – it is a complete package in one.
We work closely with our link Speech and Language Therapist and we are aware that our local authority is inundated with requests for speech and language services. With the ability to screen and support the majority of our pupils with their speech and language needs using WellComm Primary, we are helping to relieve the burden on the service.
