Intensive Oral Langauge Programs

Outreach - Intensive Oral Language Programs

untitled-14 (Copy)Teachers are supported through professional learning and ongoing support to assess students and then conduct rotational groups. Activities are modelled by a Support Officer, Speech & Language, allowing teachers to have time for questions and discussion.

In order to obtain a baseline and to help direct planning, all children are assessed by a teacher using the assessments provided, both before and after implementation of the program.

Both programs have been implemented in schools around the Peel, South West and Kimberley regions over the last six years with significant positive results.
