WellComm

What is WellComm?

WellComm is a toolkit used in our EYFS Unit to assess and support children’s speech and language development.

It is built upon fun, child-friendly interventions that aim to accelerate development in early language.

The WellComm approach also includes some useful building blocks for developing speech and language at school and at home.

Giving Instructions - Block Set 1

Use lively and interesting intonation. Children will listen more easily.

Repetition leads to familiarity. Familiarity makes children confident. Confident children learn better.

Giving Instructions - Block Set 2

Use short, simple sentences.

Say a child's name before giving an instruction (e.g. 'Sam, come here!')

If your child does not speak clearly

Model the use of new language and clear sentences.

Say a child's name before giving an instruction (e.g. 'Sam, come here!')

Always

Give them time to think.
