Information for Commissioners for SaLTs: Commissioning training for Parents
SaLTs are highly trained professionals who produce quality information for parents. The better parents are at completing therapy programmes at home the more quickly the child should progress which ultimately means improved outcomes for children and throughput.
Training parents is a huge benefit not only for the child who has difficulties but for all the children in the family. Money spent on training
and equipping parents to communicate more effectively with their child is money well spent.
It is therefore essential that SaLTs offer effective tried and tested training to parents and Elklan can provide the training resources therapists
