WellComm-The complete speech and language toolkit, from screening to intervention.
Delayed language skills lead to under-performance later in life, yet many primary school children have unidentified speech and language difficulties. WellComm can help you to turn this around.
Both the Early Years and the Primary toolkits enable you to quickly and easily identify children needing support. They’re quick and simple to use (requiring no speech and language expertise), and the traffic light scoring format of the instant reports makes them quick to interpret.
Both toolkits come with an age-appropriate Big Book of Ideas providing a total of over 150 instant, play-based activities so you can take appropriate action straight away. Activities can be used with parents at home too, so that support is provided whether or not a child is referred to a speech and language therapist
Simple and quick
The WellComm toolkits were developed by Speech and Language Therapists at Sandwell and West Birmingham Hospitals NHS Trust with the aim of providing easy-to-use support for everyone involved with children.
Requiring no specialist expertise, they quickly identify areas of concern in language, communication, and interaction development in order to ensure early targeted intervention.
Once a profile has been drawn up for each child, The Big Book of Ideas provides focused teaching and intervention activities to meet individual needs.
The optional Online Report Wizard automatically generates a personalised profile with a list of targeted interventions from The Big Book of Ideas, providing a structured approach to personalised teaching and learning.
Traffic light reporting
Reports for each child are easy to follow. Green = no intervention needed, Amber = provide extra support and Red = consider referral to an SLT. Advice and follow-up activities are suggested, and re-screening shows you whether the child is improving.
There is also an optional Online Report Wizard which is especially helpful for comparing children across linked schools, whether by Local Authority or Multi Academy Trust.
The Big Book of Ideas includes 150 simple, play-based activities that can be tailored to children with a range of abilities and can be used with both individual pupils and whole classes. This means that you can start to make a difference the moment you see the reports. There are activities specially designed for parents to use with their children at home too.
