Every child a talker (eCaT)

At Lordswood Community Pre School we use ECaT to monitor the children communication and launguage skills and how they are developing appropriately for their age.  We identify any areas that they may need some additional help.  Their key person will include these as next steps in their short term planning.


Our main aims are:

  • Improving the speech, language and communication skills of all young children
  • To develop the knowledge and skills of all practitioners so they can support children to make progress without necessarily referring them to the Speech & Language Therapy Team.
  • To inform and guide parents about speech and language developments, so that with the support of professionals, they can also help their children's language skills at home


Our ECaT leader is Sarah


If you have any concerns with your child's speech & language please speak to Sarah to discuss your concerns.
