Stockport NHS Charity funds Speech Link for over 80 Stockport primary schools, in partnership with the Stockport NHS Children’s Speech and Language Therapy Service
Speech Link Multimedia Ltd is pleased to announce that it is partnering the Stockport NHS Children’s Speech and Language Therapy Service and the Stockport NHS Charity to deliver Speech Link to over 80 primary schools. The Charity-funded package will provide the schools with a year’s free subscription to the Speech Link package. The schools will be able to use this to assess all 4-8 year-olds in their provisions.
Speech Link is used to identify and support children with developmental speech sound difficulties. Launched in 2003, it is used widely throughout the UK to help schools decide who needs to be seen by a Speech and Language Therapist and those at risk of literacy difficulties. Speech Link helps demystify speech work and helps support staff to work effectively with children’s common speech sound errors.
