14-17 years

Language development at this stage is a gradual process.  Changes still take place but they are harder to see. Teens need to learn to develop relationships and join in social activities on their own.

Usually teens will:

  • Follow complicated instructions
  • Know when they haven’t understood. They will ask to be told again
  • Easily swap between ‘classroom’ talk and ‘breaktime’ talk
  • Tell long and very complicated stories

If you are concerned about your teen, speak to their class teacher, the SENCO or Head Teacher. They will be able to refer you to our services. You will typically be invited to attend an appointment at your teen’s school. From this initial appointment we will decide the best intervention for your teen.
