I am namechanging and asking this for a friend, who is starting to research secondary schools for her DC, who needs speech therapy.

Does anyone have any advice as to how she should proceed.

Anyone have any experience of non-Mainstream schools in the area which specialise in speech therapy?

There are none in West Sussex, There is no speech therapy provided in any units/MS schools in West Sussex at all. I work in one of these units. the SALT visits about twice a year and the rest is done by me (bloody good teacher but not a SALT grin).

Not sure about Surrey but likely to be similar.

Try St Dominic's in Godalming. Fabbity Fab S&L therapy. Have living proof sitting here at home!!!

More House (Moore House) school in Oxten (Blindley Heath) is specifically for S&L. Only does boarding but is said to be brilliant.

Thanks for replies.

Will check out St Dominics. Already know about Moor House but boarding is the issue - at 11?? sad sad

So what do people tend to do for secondary education if their child has S&L problems?

I a, hoping ds can get a place at one of the Ican schools , one in surrey does till they are 11 , there one in nottingham does till they are 18 so not sure which way to go was thinking Surrey but Ds will still need s&l at 11 without adoubt
