Speech and Language – The Balanced System - Scheme for Schools Accreditation Project
Children and young people with speech, language and communication needs (SLCN) represent around one third of children and young people with SEN in Primary Schools in England.
The Scheme for schools has been developed in response to demand from schools for a whole systems approach to understanding the school’s role in commissioning and providing support for children and young people with speech, language and communication needs alongside specialist services such as speech and language therapists and specialist teachers.
The scheme for schools is a strategic approach with an overarching set of outcomes, processes and outcome measures across the core five strands of the Balanced System: supporting parents, young people and families; enhancing and adapting the environment; developing the workforce; identifying need; and providing appropriate intervention.
