Speech and Language Therapy Department

Cavendish High Academy has its own on-site Speech and Language Therapy specialist. Diane works closely with the class teams in order to maximize the speech, language and communication skills of our students.

The Speech and Language Therapist (SaLT)  is able to provide  assessment, advice and therapy within school. Diane may work alongside a student in class, or may withdraw students for individual or group therapy, depending on their individual needs.

The SaLT is also trained to offer sensory assessments, and can provide sensory strategies to help individual students access the curriculum more effectively.

Liaising with teaching staff and with parents is a vital part of Diane's role, and she is available in school by appointment or can be contacted by phone or email.
