Oral Language Program
YMCA WA has partnered with WACHS Great Southern and Southern Inland Health Initiative Primary Health to implement a whole class Oral Language Program in Kindergartens and pre-primary schools in Borden, Nyabing, Pingrup, Ongerup, Gnowangerup, Tambellup, Kojonup, Broomehill, Katanning, Braeside, St Bernard’s, St Patricks and Woodanilling.
YMCA employs a Speech Therapist and Therapy Assistant who form part of an integrated team to deliver the program to Kindergarten children across the Central Great Southern. The program involves school teachers, education assistants and parents to create an integrated support network for children who have been identified with mild to moderate language delays.
The Kindergarten Oral Language Program has seen tremendous success in its pilot phase with increased intervention and support provided to children, improved participation by clients and delivery of successful skill development games following a group therapy model.
