Communication

Learners can be referred to Communication for a range of reasons. Our Communication Team, including our Speech and Language Therapist make recommendations to support staff to support effective communication across the curriculum.
Daily strategies are used throughout Landgate to support communication;
Signalong- A key word sign-supported communication system based on British sign language and is used in spoken word order.
Sign of the week- Weekly sign involving members of staff and learners. Signs are shown in assemblies and online to encourage other learners to sign.
Board maker- Used to create visual timetables, menus and symbols for subjects.
Learning journals- Resource used to allow learners to inform parents/carers of what a learner has done each day.
Visual timetables and menus- Adapted timetables and lunch menus which include symbols and signs in order to support learners.
