Prior's Court is proud to have adopted a total communication approach to allow for complete transparency when talking to parents and staff across the organisation. 

Prior's Court's team of Speech and Language Therapists work with parents and staff throughout the education an residential departments to develop a total communication approach which will fully support each individual young person in all settings. 

The aim is to create strategies, resources, and stimulating environments which will develop young people's non-verbal and verbal communication abilities; facilitate social interaction, attention and understanding; and support emotional development such as self-esteem and self-assertiveness. 

Symbol exchange is used to support language or the acquisition of language as well as signing and electronic communication systems. 

Communication is one of our seven Areas of Learning which makes up the Prior's Court Learning Framework.
