Abstract

This report of the Withywood Speech and Language Therapy (WiSaLT) project describes the process of setting up and evaluating a mainstream school-based and -funded speech and language therapy service. Outcomes for the child, the classroom setting, the teacher/therapist relationship and the school as a whole were monitored. Progress towards each of the outcomes was demonstrated but it was found that those children with phonological difficulties made more progress than those with language problems. The reasons for this and implications for the future of the service are discussed.
