It is part of East Dunbartonshire’s Language and Communication Service. The Language and Communication Resource supports pupils whose language and communication development is significantly delayed and/or disordered compared to other areas of their development which can be age appropriate.
Additional difficulties with organisation, motor planning and literacy can also be present. The provision is based on a model of social inclusion with pupils integrating into the community of St Ninian’s. Pupils access a differentiated curriculum though teaching approaches which are highly intensive and which rely on the development and upkeep of structure and routine. Consequently, there is a huge emphasis on pastoral care.
Pupils are provided with additional support from Educational Psychology, Support for Learning staff, Speech and Language Therapy and other appropriate services if required.
