Speech & Language

"Hi. My name is Rachael and I work at The Michael Tippett School on Monday's and Tuesday's.

I work in school at a universal level. This means I provide training and support to staff in order to create a communication rich environment for all students

I also help co-ordinate targeted speech, language and social communication group interventions. This includes Lego therapy and interactive storytelling groups. 

I work with staff to identify specific communication targets and implement individualized communication tools to meet the students needs. This includes low tech AAC (Alternative and Augmentative Communication) such as Picture Exchange Communication System (PECS) and high tech AAC such as switches and software

for more information about other ways of speaking click here. We are also proud to be participating in the Communication Trust Communication Commitment. See our certificate here.

I host regular parent workshops in school. For more information email I also communicate with parents via the students home/school communication books."
