The Learning Path’s Children
Children that are referred to The Learning Path have speech and language, learning difficulties and general developmental delays. They usually experience problems in the following areas:
- Understanding or producing grammatical sentences
- Understanding or expressing meanings
- Understanding or using language for social communication
- Producing speech sounds
- Processing information
- Motor planning
- Visual and/or Auditory processing
These difficulties affect the child’s ability to understand the language of others and/or express what they want to say and often frustrate the child.
Teachers, teaching assistants, speech and occupational therapists work together in partnership to support the child’s learning across the curriculum and help them develop and use strategies to overcome their difficulties.
