Laia goes to Language Land – Greyfriars Speech and Language Support Videos
Our Speech and Language Lead, Mrs Marshall, has been working very hard creating videos to support children with speech and language needs. Thank you Mrs Marshall!
The first video introduces the character of Laia and her adventures in Language Land. The subsequent videos focus on one sound at time. We’d love any feedback on how these have helped your child. Click on the thumbnails to access the videos.
