Communication Team

We recognise that supporting children’s communication skills from birth onwards can help to transform their life chances giving them the best chance of becoming successful adults who can take their place in the community.

Communication is a life skill and early identification and intervention is essential. A skilled and supported workforce and joint working are critical to ensure best practice. The communication team based at Newman are experienced at delivering an alternative and augumentative means of communication e.g signing and use of communication aids, where there are barriers to using spoken language. A fully qualified Speech Therapist working alongside the AAC lead and Communications Manager ensure that any young person that has SLCN receive help, advice and interventions to meet their communication needs.
