Taking Control of your Learning
Often people think that Speech Therapy at this age is ineffective. This is far from true. Everybody has the ability to make progress no matter what their age or ability.
At TLLT we currently work in highschools and of course, have been through highschool ourselves. We know the demands that are placed on students. Suddenly, learning becomes specialised, the vocabularly becomes scientific and the requirements for reading and writing go far beyond the basic mechanics. With a speech, language or learning difficulty, sometimes it can feel like you are ‘drowning in words’.
We are here to help you take control of your learning. From your first session we will work with you to set personalised language and literacy goals and determine the steps needed to achieve them. Working with both you and your highschool, we will help you through these steps in a supported and systematic way. We are here to help you succeed.
Check out the developmental checklist on the secondary school and young adults page for a list of skills that are often expected in highschool
If you are concerned about meeting some of these expectations, please contact us. We are here to help!
