Does your school want to use Colourful Semantics

We can place a therapist trained in colourful semantics  in your school, to set up whole class approaches, small group and 1;1 colourful semantics work.

We are also now offering remote support sessions to help you set up programmes and aid with the creation of resources and implementation of targets and measurable goals. See here for more information or email us on info@integratedtreatments.co.uk to book some flexible remote SLT support with Colourful Semantics or more general SLT support.

We can also deliver onsite training to Teachers and Teaching Assistants in using Colourful Semantics and have a library of resources for you to download for free.

What is Colourful Semantics

Colourful Semantics is the ‘meaning of the words’ and this is made colourful by breaking down and colour coding different parts of a sentence.  Colourful Semantics is a speech and language therapy intervention that indirectly works on developing a child’s grammar through the use of:

  • Spoken sentences
  • Answering W/H questions
  • Use of nouns, verbs, prepositions and adjectives
  • Story telling skills
  • Written sentences  and language comprehension

You will be able to work through the Colourful Semantics programme to encourage the child to create sentences. This is initially taught by focusing on sorting out colours, which will then progress to an understanding that there are different parts that make up a sentence.

The overall aim is for the child to eventually produce grammatical and informational sentences.

The 4 key levels are:

Level 1 – Who?  The Dog.  Subject -( ORANGE)

Level 2 – What doing?  Is playing with.  Verb – (Yellow)

Level 3 – What?  The Ball.  Object (Green)

Level 4 – Where?  In the Garden.  Location (Blue)

Colourful Semantics resources

Our Colourful Semantics resources have been designed by our team of SLTs and can be downloaded here including a starter pack.

Alternatively you can like and follow our Facebook Resources page to see the latest themed resources.

Many of our resources are topic based to help you support curriculum themes across each term.
