A few examples of feedback about our service.......
Bridge Learning Campus (Hartcliffe, Bristol):
"Since the Talk Team have started at Bridge Learning Campus this year, I cannot recommend them highly enough. They have been instrumental in making a difference to the low levels of speech and language within our Early Years classes and from next term will be working with students up to Year 11. Their energy and flexibility of thinking with the team at BLC has been the real element that sets them apart from other S&L teams.
Since starting with us in Terms 5&6, they have already led INSET training, delivered training to support staff, worked within whole class situations, screened all new entries into Nursery and Reception, as well as showing progress with all of their language and phonology groups. The range of their skills has meant that other students within the campus have also had thorough individual assessments which they have been happy to share with parents too.
More importantly, all of the team have a wonderful way with the children, and the staff at BLC really value having them as part of the inclusion team".

Parent of child with learning difficulties:
"My son has learning disabilities and a severe speech delay. We have been working with Rachel for the past 6 months to help my son James develop his
speech. We have had some major breakthroughs, James can now say his name, say "yes", which were very difficult for him to do due to his disabilities. In
general his vocabulary has increased massively. James can be difficult to engage in activities, but Rachel has worked with him well due to her exciting speech
therapy tasks, based on what James enjoys and the best approach for his disabilities. James always looks forward to Rachel coming as she has a personality
which is very suited to her job! Rachel is also knowledgable about statements of educational need and has supported us to get a better statement for James."
