Speech Pathologist Program
In a partnership with Curtin University, Burrendah Primary School hosts Curtin Speech Pathology first clinical year and final clinical year student placements. The team of students under the supervision of a qualified Speech Pathologist work collaboratively with the school one day a week to offer individual assessments, therapy sessions and whole class services to Pre-primary and Year 1-4.
In Term 1 the Curtin student speech pathologists assessed speech and language skills using the Screen of Communication Skills (SOCS) screening tool with Kindergarten students. The results of this information is shared with parents and classroom teachers to develop early targeted intervention.
