Some disabilaities are not visible to the human eye and on the outside, children appear the same. But everyone’s brain is wired differently giving rise to unique strengths and challenges. Up to 30% of children are starting mainstream school in the UK with limited spoken language skills which will impact on their attention, listening, literacy and social interaction and each child’s brain will be affected in different ways. The unique interaction between the child’s environment and his individual brain wiring will have many different behavioural manifestations and some children may have low self esteem, lack confidence, be quiet, shy or disengaged or have challenging behaviours due to lack of awareness of their difficulties.
At Words First Ltd we specialize in identifying the point of breakdown in the areas known to be important for fluent reading, comprehension and expression meaning that our highly specialist team of speech and language therapists can guide intervention and support that is child-focused, appropriate and individualized and make environmental adaptations that will remove barriers to achieving success in school.
You are not alone if your primary or secondary school has a large number of students who are struggling to reach their potential in language and literacy. Words First will support your students, staff and parents to understand the unique challenges of each student and will provide intervention that is specifically designed to address the area of breakdown.
