Late Language Development
Speech Sound Delay / Disorder Pathway
This is an enhanced assessment for students in the Early Years who are unable to access Mable independently. The approach is designed to improve interactions between a student and a key worker or parent.
We use the principles of dynamic assessment to stimulate the child’s zone of proximal development while centring language on what the child is motivated by and focussing on.
