Communication and Language

At Norton we believe Communication and Language is key to a child’s learning, understanding and development. We provide a communication friendly environment in order to support the communication and language skills of young children in our Foundation Stage. All children are screened on entry to identify any risk of speech and language delay. Identified children are given targeted support to develop individual needs. We currently use WellComm and Early Talk Boost as targeted interventions for speech and language.

We use a range of practical resources to promote listening and attention, talking, social communication and understanding. We work closely with parents to share tips on how they can support speech and language development at home.
