Early Years Practitioners are tasked with one of the most important and enjoyable jobs there is!  Nurseries are all about the joy of working with the youngest children but also the significant opportunities to make positive and lasting change for those who are at risk of falling behind. Soundswell therapists are passionate about early intervention.

More than half of children starting school in socially disadvantaged areas of England have delayed language

Early Years Practitioners are ideally placed to narrow the gap between the most disadvantaged children and their peers.

Early help is crucial.

Much of our activity for the youngest children is at universal level.

Everything we do is designed to make you as self-sufficient as possible.

For us the priorities are to:

  • Provide the optimum communication environment for every child
  • Identify early children who are not making anticipated progress for whatever reason(and help you to do something about it)

Via training sessions, large or small, informal or more formal, in class groups or with the therapist working directly alongside staff showing how to support particular children, Soundswell speech
and language therapists can help.

Here is a flavour of what we are currently doing.

We encourage our schools and settings to make the most of the service we provide, but there is no 'take it or leave it' mentality.

We have a menu of options and we love the challenge of developing new approaches too.
