Brief Description:

Verbo is an online speech and language therapy (SaLT) toolkit that empowers education staff to support children and young people's (CYP) communication skills.

Communication skills are vital for all CYP, with wide-reaching impact on academic attainment, employment prospects and emotional well-being. A communication-rich environment and upskilled staff are essential in supporting CYP to achieve their potential. However, access to SaLT services can be a postcode lottery.

Verbo has responded to these challenges by already providing over 400 schools an online, semi-automated solution consisting of screening tools, targets, training webinars, interventions with video modelling and downloadable resources, and robust impact measures.
