What About speech and verbal skills?

What about speech and verbal skills?

Functional and meaningful verbal communication is the long-term aim for all pupils at Uffculme School. All pupils who are non-verbal on entry to the school are introduced to a method of communication which best fits their level of communication development. This is reviewed regularly to ensure optimal functionality.

 ‘Picture for Object Trading’ is a picture based communication system developed at Uffculme School and is closely linked to the school’s ‘Sentence Building Programme’ which is not reliant on verbal ability or verbal comprehension. Pupils’ vocabulary and language skills are further developed using the school’s pre-phonics literacy programmes.

Uffculme School is closed to students and staff on Monday 11th December due to adverse weather conditions
