The Linking Language with Middle and Upper Primary School Learning (LINK-UP) Program is a professionally collaborative approach to supporting middle and upper primary school students with language difficulty by creating ‘language-friendly’ classrooms.

In following this program, Speech-Language Pathologists can coach teachers in ways to modify the oral and written instructional language used in their regular classroom teaching practices. ​

LINK-UP is an adaptation of the Linking Language with Secondary School Learning (LINK-S) Program, an evidence-based approach to supporting secondary school students with language difficulty. ​

The LINK-UP Manual includes:

  • Background information: The nature and impact of language difficulty in middle and upper primary school children, and how professionals can work together to provide inclusive within-class support.
  • The program: A detailed framework of the program, and how it can be administered.
  • Resources: Many specific resources are included in the manual that are fundamental to the delivery of the program.
  • A CD: The CD has printable PDF files of all resources included in the Appendix section of the manual, such as handouts, forms and language strategy resources.
