Example text

The children who have speech sound-production difficulties (for example, verbal dyspraxia) have developed their ability to produce a wider range of sounds, which has made their speech easier to understand. I have continued to develop the program in collaboration with my colleagues at the language unit since 1997. The CA sessions have been held once a week, incorporating multi-sensory approaches to literacy development and phonological awareness tasks. The children were introduced to the signs and colour coding of a new sound each week.

The results of each pupil’s performance were entered into a data bank so that class teachers could receive information at a number of different levels. At the school feedback sessions, class teachers received feedback about each individual pupil and their class as a whole. This included a graphic representing the oral-language skills of prep pupils at the class, school and cluster level.
