What to expect

Statement of special educational needs

A speech and language therapist will usually play a key role in contributing to a child's statement of special educational needs.

What are special educational needs?

Special educational needs is a legal term which refers to a child who has learning difficulties which make it difficult for them to learn and access their education. If a child has special educational needs they may need help with areas of their speech and language and will often benefit from speech and language therapy input.

What is a statement of special educational needs?

A statement of special educational needs is a formal document which provides information on how much support and what type of support a child may need in order to help them learn and access their education to their full potential.

What involvement will a speech and language therapist have in contributing to a child's statement of special educational needs?

The speech and language therapist will play a key role in helping to contribute to a child's statement of special educational needs. The speech and language therapist will carry out a detailed assessment of a child's speech, language and communication abilities to help determine whether the child will need any additional support in helping them to learn and access their education.

Following a detailed assessment the speech and language therapist will provide a full report on the child's areas of difficulty in their speech, language and communication, how this will impact them in their educational environment and also any recommendations of support they will need.

Our speech and language therapists will work closely with other professionals when assessing if a child has special educational needs. They will also work closely with other professionals when deciding on what support the child will need to help them access their education to their full potential.

Our speech and language therapists can provide a specialised service for children with special educational needs and also their parents, teachers and other professionals in helping them to achieve their best potential in the educational environment.
