Infant Language Link

Caroline Thorne, HLTA for SEN: The assessment gives an accurate picture of each child's needs and level of understanding. As a whole year group screening tool, it enables us to quickly identify those children who need to be seen by a therapist and also those children who would benefit from intervention at a lower level. We re-assess those children who we have ongoing concerns about throughout their time at the federation and refer to our findings often in pupil progress meetings.
Tara, Leader of Learning Inclusion (SENDCO): I think the assessment is effective, can be used when working with SALTs, private and NHS. Intervention resources are easy to follow, fun and effective.
jane notley, senta: inputting data such as language link effectiveness can be long winded as there is no option but to jump between groups/year groups.
