Wellcomm is a specialist toolkit used by the local authority speech and language team. At Moulton Nurery School we work closely with the speech and language team when supporting children to develop both their speaking listening and understanding skills.
The programme uses a very simple traffic light system which highlights areas which need additional support. We are then able to decide if a child needs to be referred to the speech and language team or whether extra intervention sessions at nursery are needed.
Intervention sessions at nursery are simply short play sessions focusing on different areas of language. They could be carried out in small groups or in a one to one session with the child's key worker.
Activities could include following simple instructions such as brush teddies hair, Pass me two cups etc. All work carried out in nursery will be explained to parents and inforamtion sheets are provided to parents so they are able to continue activities at home.
