Speech and Language therapist Emma Tunnicliffe has a wealth of knowledge supporting children of all ages with a range of communication difficulties.
Together with Justine Woolley, they are the founders of Speech Leap – a dynamic, independent Speech and Language Therapy company, which now has 6 therapists – to offer a personalised service to parents and schools, based in the North West of England.
Speech Leap was founded in 2018 after working together in the NHS. They’re passionate about raising the awareness of speech, language and communication skills.
In this interview, we discuss Developmental Language Disorder (DLD) and how to differentiate it from typical child language development. Emma explains how DLD may affect two to three children in every class of 30, so it is essential to understand and recognise it. We go on to discuss the type of knock-on effects that may occur with children’s social and emotional development, literacy and other areas of development.
Emma suggests 3 clear strategies for Early Years teachers and educators to use with children to help support their speech, language and communication.
