Resource Catalogues





Specialist resources can often come with a hefty price tag. 

To avoid unnecessary expenditure, why not borrow some of our resources to see if they make the intended impact before making a purchase.

There is a variety of resources available to loan out which meet a varied array of needs.

Anything loaned out is FREE OF CHARGE to any Wokingham School

Loans are usually for one calendar month but extensions and other arrangements can be agreed.

An update from CYPIT

If your child is not yet in school and has speech, language and communication difficulties

We recommend that families and early years settings start by following the advice and strategies on our advice pages or take one of our Early language development workshops. Strategies should be followed for 8-12 weeks. If after this you are still worried, and you have a Berkshire GP, starting Tuesday 9 January 2024 please call us and speak to a Speech and Language Therapist to discuss your child’s communication.

Our phone lines will be open from 9am-3.30pm on a Tuesday and Thursday.  Many issues can be helped by talking, so let’s talk! Call us on: 0118 9043700

As of 22 December 2023 the online referral form will no longer be needed to access Early Years Speech and Language Therapy Service. Therefore please do not complete a referral form, instead please contact our enquiries line to discuss your concerns with a Speech and Language Therapist when the lines open from the 9 January 2024. In the meantime, please feel free to take a look at our support and advice.

If you require additional support to make a phone call, please email: cypittriage2@berkshire.nhs.uk.
