Speech, Language and Communication Centre – Mrs Conlon (Acting Co-ordinator), Mrs Kelly Bogue & Miss Friel

Welcome to our Speech, Language and Communication Centre. Our pupils receive extra support with their speech language and communication skills from dedicated speech therapists. This work is consolidated in the classroom and targets and useful strategies are shared with parents at regular meetings. Pupils have opportunities to work and learn together with their peers in the mainstream school. Our pupils follow the Northern Ireland Curriculum. Teachers plan together and share best practice with colleagues, learning support assistants and speech therapists.
