Presentation by - Trish
ECLIPS are part of Lincolnshire County Council's Specialist Teaching Team, they specialise in supporting children and young adults with speech and language difficulties.
They work closely with parents/carers, schools/colleges and other professional agencies such as the NHS Speech and Language Therapy service.
They are keen to promote Makaton training and support options for families and educators. Makaton is an internationally recognised language development programme that supports a multi-modal approach to teaching communication, language and literacy skills.
It can be used to support a wide range of communication and language needs from individuals with profound, moderate or mild learning difficulties, individuals with Developmental Language Disorder, individuals with no or developing speech, individuals with autistic spectrum disorders or sensory impairments to individuals with EAL.
The Dyslexia Outreach specialist teachers are also part of LCC's Specialist Teaching Team and offer advice and support for individuals with Dyslexia.
