SALT training cost

    We have a child in Reception who stammers. He's under an NHS SALT and she has offered to come into school to train staff. She says there will be a cost for this. We've had SALTs in school before, training and modelling how to support children, but never had to pay before. What's other people's experience?

    Do they really need the training? They aren't going to be teaching him strategies to prevent the stammering, merely finding ways to manage it in the classroom. Given they are presumably capable professionals, they'll find their own ways to do that anyway.

    Yes, we've always paid for such things in all the schools I've worked in.
