Speech and Language

Successful communication is key to leading a good life: being able to express yourself and being understood…really understood… is the most wonderful experience. And underpinning that is the security that comes with being in an environment where you genuinely understand what is happening and know that you have influence.

As we grow from child into adult, the world expects different things of us and we need to learn new ways to express ourselves, ways that fit with the adult we are becoming. To flourish we need a rich communication environment that supports our needs. At the Mount, we embrace all forms of communication support and believe in tailoring tasks and the surroundings to encourage understanding – and in turn brings greater success.

There are so many people to interact with each day in so many ways that college life at The Mount presents amazing opportunities to develop communication. Speech and Language Therapy looks at each person as a whole and, together with the student, we work out the communication skills we are going to help them build so that as a young adult they are able to make their way in the world as independently and confidently as possible.
