Providing Services to Children & Families

Layburn Speech & Language uses the Early Years Learning and Development Framework to inform how services are provided to children, their families and other stakeholders. Layburn Speech & Language is committed to achieving the following outcomes:

Children have a strong sense of identity

Children who have a strong sense of identity feel comfortable within local, social and cultural practices important to their lives.

Children are connected with and contribute to their world

Children strive for connection and seek belonging – to people, country, place and communities that help them to learn about local ways.

Children have a strong sense of wellbeing

Children who have a strong sense of wellbeing develop positive social skills. They learn to be comfortable in the range of settings that are part of their lived.

Children are confident and involved learners

Children who are confident and involved learners have positive dispositions toward learning, experiencing challenge and success in their leering, and are able to contribute positively and effectively to other children’s learning.

Children are effective communicators

Children’s wellbeing, identity, sense of agency and capacity to make friends is connected to the development of communication skills, and strongly linked to their capacity to express feelings and thoughts, and to be understood.

Layburn Speech & Language strives to achieve these outcomes for all children by:

Working in partnership with families by creating a welcoming and inclusive environment where all families are encouraged to participate in and contribute to experiences that enhance children’s learning and development.

Having high expectations for every child: ensuring that every child experiences success and is motivated to accept new challenges through which they learn and grow.

Maintaining respectful and responsive relationships by developing intervention that is responsive to each child and which builds on their culture, strengths, interests and knowledge.

Promoting equality and diversity by ensuring that the interests, abilities and culture of every child and their family are understood and valued.

Assessing for learning and development by providing families with information and ideas to support their child’s learning at home and in other services.

Integrating play and learning by encouraging children to explore, solve problems, communicate, think, create and construct ideas and understandings.

Partnering with professionals by collating and using evidence of children’s prior and current learning ad development to build continuity.

Engaging in reflective practice by gathering information, including the views and perspectives of each child, and using this to inform, review and enrich decision making.

Supporting children’s transitions by working together to provide consistent environments for children between home and other care and education.
