SHAPE CODING system: Part 1 Accredited

 

Purpose

The SHAPE CODING  system is primarily for children and young people with language disorders aged 7-20, but it has also been successfully used with younger children, children with hearing impairment, children with Down syndrome and adults with acquired aphasia. 

The system uses a visual coding system to show a child the rules for how words are put together in sentences, to develop the child’s understanding of spoken and written grammar and to develop their ability to use grammar successfully to express themselves.

Learning Outcomes

  • A system to develop grammar and help a child express themselves more effectively
  • A system to develop sentence structure
  • Supports written language
  • Links well with school and literacy

Audience

For SLT staff-particularly relevant to SLT’s working with clients with Developmental Language Disorder aged 7yrs-20yrs.

Appropriate for use within the school setting.  Susan Ebbels indicated that this approach has also been successfully used with younger children, children with hearing impairment, children with Down syndrome and adults with acquired aphasia.
