Teaching Assistant-led screening
This package involves:
- Training your staff to screen children’s communication using the ‘Teddy Talk Test’
- Provide a follow-up visit to provide feedback and quality assurance on the process, and develop your staff’s confidence in screening
- Supporting you to interpret the results of screening and make appropriate referrals into NHS services
Further services could include helping you to group children for targeted interventions delivered by your staff, or providing targets and activities for 1:1 interventions whilst your children wait for their local NHS services
Costs will vary according to the number of staff involved in training, but will start from £350 if your school already has the Teddy Talk Test, or £450 if a copy of this for your school is needed. This package is slightly more expensive but is an investment in the skills of your staff for the future.
