Speech and Language Therapy support at Ridge View school is provided by a team of four Speech and Language Therapists. We are employed by Kent Community Health Foundation Trust. One or more of the team is at Ridge View Tuesday to Friday and we can be contacted on the Ridge View number, extension 5.
We support pupils who need to develop their functional communication skills. This is often using Alternative and Augmentative Communication (AAC), which is any means of communication other than speech. We work very much in conjunction with those around the pupil as well as our Occupational Therapy and Physiotherapy colleagues. We also support children for who there are eating and drinking concerns.
