What is, and how to access to the CATTS Staff Speech Therapy Coaching Facebook Group
WHO IS THIS GROUP FOR?
Teachers, SNAs, Special Education Teachers who want help and support so you can better work with children in your class.
The CATTS SLT team have almost 80 years of combined SLT experience, and our service does not restrict on severity level, or age.
We help support ASD units, as well as mainstream classrooms with inclusion of special needs children.
If we can help you, help your pupils, we will.
You can get benefit from this group no matter what level you are starting from.
The single biggest common factor between those kids we have seen grow, thrive and succeed- whatever their abilities or challenges- and those who have not done as well – is their parents.
Sometimes people confuse therapy with magic. A 60 minute session each week won’t work on its own. It has to be generalized to daily life.
Same thing with teachers. You are AMAZING – but the time you have their kids in your care each school day isn’t going to change everything without parent’s helping and reinforcing at home.
The parents who get it- know that if they can just have pointers, guides or in some cases even just one single thing to work on- they are prepared to run with it to help their child. You have access to materials to print off and use in school, and then give to a parent to work on at home. The parent does not need to be a member of the companion Parent Coaching Group in order to get benefit – although that is ideal and would close the loop on ensuring that both classroom life and home life joins up in supporting them.
This group will give you access to.
CATTS has decades of therapy materials, and information that has been found to be invaluable to teachers in the past. Not all of it is online, until we are asked for it by you. That way we can select the most useful specific items to ensure they are made available so you can use them with your class.
To keep the quality and ensure that it grows as its members need, we will be using a subscription setting. However the first 30 days will always be free for new subscribers.
Afterwards there will be a monthly, quarterly or yearly subscription- but always at less than the cost of a single hour of SLT support to a school each month.
The plans below are for individual teachers or SNAs, if you are paying for access yourself. (You will get a receipt to claim back if you wish from your school).
We have school level plans, which we can discuss with you, based on the number of teachers who may require assistance. (As that indicates the SLT time needed to support you).
