Afasic transition courses from primary to secondary school - for children who have problems talking and understanding what others say

Afasic and our expert SALT partners had a busy summer 2018, running 14 of our unique ‘Secondary Starter’ transition courses for Year 6 children who have persistent speech, language and communication difficulties.

Each tailored group included interactive games to help make friends, team work in a secondary school atmosphere and fun practical opportunities to practice independent learning, social and communication skills.

 In total 180 children gained skills & confidence to make a successful start at Secondary School and over the past eight years we have run 145 courses across the UK, with 1,744 children benefiting from them.
