Hi I am a third year speech and language therapy student at Newcastle University and am really interested in investigating collaborative working between SLTs and EYFS teachers in mainstream schools for my dissertation. I have not decided on a specific research question yet, but would appreciate it if some of you had the time to answer a few questions. 1. In what way (if any) have you changed your practice in view of changes to the EYFS framework which places more emphasis on developing a child's speaking and listening ? 2. What strategies do you use to develop children's speaking and listening? 3. What speaking and listening assessments do you carry out? 4. Do you feel you had enough training in the typical development of children's speech and language in order to feel confident about being able to identify atypical development? Thanks very much.
