In the last 10 years I have specialised my continuous professional learning to focus on Speech Sound Disorders, including Childhood Apraxia of Speech & Oral Facial Myology.

I run a 2-hour Inset/teacher training session discussing:

  • The role of the SLT and hierarchy of communication in typical development
  • The difference between speech sound delay vs disorder and the different types of speech sound difficulties.
  • What is age appropriate? Speech sounds development with typical processes vs disordered processes a child can present with.
  • Understanding of how and where sounds are made in the mouth and cues and tips for elicitation – practical activity.
  • Vowel development and placement. How facilitative contexts help to elicit production.
  • Application to the classroom and how to best support children at school.
  • Application to Phonological awareness and literacy


“We had a fantastic session of training with Samantha Lewis. It provided us with an overview of speech issues, a guide to assessing children's speech and most importantly ways we could help them in the classroom. The sheets she provided gave us a plethora of information for us to refer back to when needed. Samantha is engaging and inspiring and her passion shines through in her delivery. Every one of the team have been motivated to use her strategies in our EYFS setting and therefore support the children in a more purposeful way when developing their speech. We cannot thank her enough and we could have easily spent far more hours with her!!” Jo Turner, Deputy Headteacher, The Wroxham School.
