  • Verbal reasoning
  • Association

The programme places the children into groups based on their level of need and language link groups are then run throughout the year to work on the development of the identified skills. The children who have been accessing groups are then reassessed to determine the level of progress made and inform plans for future input.


The Language Link assessment is then also used throughout KS1 and KS2 to screen children who are new to the school, those who have a new identified Speech, language and communication need and to monitor those children who have been previously been involved with the groups. Language Links groups are set up throughout the year groups to meet any current need.
