Our Company


Our Company Mission

Speech Link Multimedia Ltd was formed in 2004 in the UK and since then we have continued to develop innovative and award winning support packages for children with SLCN. Our ongoing mission is to bring Speech and Language Therapy knowledge and expertise to every school to help all children reach their full communication potential.

Our Vision

Our vision is for all school staff to be able to identify and support all children with speech, language and communication needs appropriately so no child is left behind at school or in life through poor understanding of language.
