Communication and Interaction
As stated in the SEND Code of Practice 2015:
6.28 Children and young people with speech, language and communication needs (SLCN) have difficulty in communicating with others. This may be because they have difficulty saying what they want to, understanding what is being said to them or they do not understand or use social rules of communication. The profile for every child with SLCN is different and their needs may change over time. They may have difficulty with one, some or all of the different aspects of speech, language or social communication at different times of their lives.
6.29 Children and young people with ASD, including Asperger’s Syndrome and Autism, are likely to have particular difficulties with social interaction. They may also experience difficulties with language, communication and imagination, which can impact on how they relate to others.
This includes children with Specific Learning Difficulties, Moderate Learning Difficulties, Severe Learning Difficulties and Profound and Multiple Learning Difficulties.
We were joined on Thursday 2nd March at our SEND Coffee Morning by Speech and Language Therapist Fharia Choudhury. During our session Fharia shared the information linked above. The input from Fharia gives information on Emotional Regulation and Social Stories. If you have any questions, after reading through the information please contact your child's class teacher or a member of the SEND Team.
