Speech Program

Speech is an integral part of our work at Eddie's and our speech program impacts across the curriculum and social, developmental domains.

In collaboration with families, our full-time Speech Pathologist works both in small student groups as well as with teaching staff both in and out of the classroom, so that individual communication needs are met in class and for life outside of and beyond school.

St Edmund's is committed to using the most up-to-date technology, wherever appropriate, to give its students the best opportunity to effectively and efficiently communicate. All staff embrace regular professional development, including information on individual student strategies, to ensure students have access to personalised support from all staff they encounter throughout the school day.

Our speech program also includes extra-curricular speech groups, 'Smooth Talkers', 'TechHeads', 'Pathways to Work - Social Skills', designed to encourage interaction amongst students and develop social skills.
