Did you know that even a mild speech or language delay can have a significant impact on your child's learning to read and write in the early school years? We are very aware of this at Sutherland Dianella Primary School, so have arranged for local, experienced Speech Pathologist Liana Gunzburg to screen our Kindergarten and Pre Primary students. If there are any difficulties, these can be detected early, so your child can then receive suitable help. For those who were already seen in Kindergarten, this gives us a chance to check on concerns which may have been observed last year.
If you have received a permission form for Speech and Language Screening, please complete it and return it to the school office as quickly as possible, so that Liana can begin the screening process. Pre Primary children will be seen first, with Kindergarten children later in the term or in term 2.
Liana Gunzburg is a hughly respected and local Speech Pathologist. Her website is: http://www.dianellaspeechpathology.com.au/
In Term 1, all parents of Kindergarten and Pre Primary students will receive a form on which we require relevant history regarding your child. The service is offered to all students including those who have already accessed or are accessing, speech services. A comprehensive report will be provided for each child screened.
