Why it Matters
Up to 50% of children currently start primary school with speech and language needs and 10% of all children have long term persistent speech, language and communication disorders. Approximately 3 children in every class have significant and recognised difficulties, however, there could be an additional 12-15 children whose needs are equally important but yet to be identified.
Our mission is to bring Speech and Language Therapy knowledge and support to every school in the UK to help all children reach their full communication potential. How? By giving teachers, teaching assistants and SENCOs tools and support for early identification, targeted interventions, training and measuring progress.
