Masikhanyisane pilot model pre-school

A lot of exciting developments have taken place at our pilot training site for pre-school teachers: 

  • Josephine Mclellan, our resident internationally trained speech therapist, and her team have developed a speech and language assessment checklist which will be used by community workers to assist with the early identification and early referral of children with speech and language difficulties.
  • To monitor the pilot programme at the Monwabisi model pre-school, every participating child has been profiled on the checklist and their progress will be continuously monitored and evaluated every six months.
  • Community-based workers have been trained to use the checklist, and the team is now working on developing a similar model for babies and toddlers.
  • The team is also working on developing a speech and language syllabus which will complement the ECD syllabus and in turn assist pre-school teachers in fulfilling their roles more effectively.
