Speech and language

Websites and organisations who may be able to help if your child has speech and language difficulties:

I CAN is the leading charity for children and young people's speech, language and communication. They provide effective, practical evidence-based solutions that change the lives of children with communication difficulties and support all children's communication development. 

I CAN explains what speech, language and commuication issues are:

"Children with speech, language and communication needs (SLCN) find it difficult to communicate with others.  Some children find it hard to: understand what is said to them, form words and construct sentences, find the right words to express thoughts and feelings, and understand rules for social interaction and conversation".

The Communication Trust is a campaigning voice for children with speech, language and communication needs. We raise awareness, influence policy, promote best practice among the children's workforce. Take a look at the Take a look at the Trust's Parents Resources
