In - School Screening Program
Speech and language screening is a time and cost effective way to monitor children’s communication milestones. Most importantly, it helps us to identify children at risk of communication and learning difficulties, so we can provide early intervention and improve their long-term social, emotional and academic outcomes.
Conducting speech and language screening in your daycare or school is beneficial for the following:
- - Early identification of children who may be at risk of speech or language delay.
- - Provision of professional education seminars to educators.
- - Creation of parent training sessions for parents to maximise their children’s communication skills.
