Speech and Language Therapy


Cheryl and Kyra are our Speech and Language support workers here at Springwell School. Both Cheryl and Kyra work under the guidance of NHS SALT and the class teachers.


Your child can be referred to work with either Kyra or Cheryl by classroom staff. Your child can be referred to the NHS SALT by school following a discussion with your child's class teacher.


What do we do?

  • Work closely with classroom staff and other support staff across school.


  • Speech and Language support – direct support in a 1:1 or group setting, indirect support through classroom staff to work towards SALT targets.


  • Therapy goals are identified through SALT assessment and can be linked to your child’s IEP by the class teacher.


Communication with parents/carers

  • Please phone school or come and visit us if you have any questions about your child’s speech, language and communication.


Communication with other professionals

  • Our school team liaise with other professionals that may be working with your child e.g. NHS SALT, OT, physiotherapy, educational psychology.


  • Cheryl and Kyra will share information with classroom staff and will contribute to your child's EHC Plan review.
