Pre-school centre for speech, language & communication needs Unit (PSLCN)

Dorking Nursery School and Children's Centre

 

This PSLCN unit is for 8 children aged 3-5 years with a range of significant speech and language impairments. These children are generally age appropriate in all other areas of development. They are fully included in the main nursery and need to be able to play independently without adult support in the setting. Working with these children we have a full-time nursery nurse/EYPS, a speech and language therapist who works with the children for one session per week and a speech and language assistant who also does one session per week. The children have full access to all the mainstream nursery activities both indoors and outside and we develop the children’s language through a whole variety of ways including:

  • small group language activities, following the ‘Language Steps’ programme
  • individual and group speech and language therapy
  • visits to the local town and surrounding area to give meaning to the language learning
  • playing in the mainstream classroom and garden
