WellComm Early Years and WellComm Primary

Delayed language skills set the scene for under-performance later in life, yet many primary school children have unidentified speech and language difficulties. WellComm can help you to turn this around.

WellComm Early Years and the new WellComm Primary toolkits enable you to quickly and easily identify children needing speech and language support, which can make a crucial difference to their confidence and attainment.

Both toolkits are quick and simple to use (requiring no speech and language expertise) by teachers, teaching assistants, SENCOs and Early Years Practitioners – and can be used as many times as needed. The instant reports are quick to digest and use an easy to understand traffic light scoring format.

Both toolkits come with an age-appropriate ‘Big Book of Ideas’ providing a total of over 150 instant, play-based activities so you can take action straight away. The activities can be used at home too so that effective support is provided whether or not a child is referred to a Speech and Language Therapist.
