In Plain English: Understanding and Dealing with Speech Difficulties

In our job, we come across students with all kinds of difficulties, and while we have training on how to deal with special educational needs, sometimes we have to educate ourselves!

Doctor Graham Williamson is a speech consultant and language therapist and has a great blog on all things related to speech. Like I aim to do with this blog, his website contains articles written in plain English which give a clear snapshot of how to understand and deal with issues including communication assessment information, which are really useful for teachers, parents and carers. Check out his site here:

As teachers, shouldn’t we be communication experts too?
