Speech, language and communication needs are the most common type of special educational need in primary school-aged children (RCSLT).


7% of children have Developmental Language Disorder. That equates to 2 children in every classroom. This does not include children who have language disorders associated with other conditions.

 

Speech, language and communication needs are linked to poor literacy development, low educational attainment and may affect employment prospects in later life.

Good speech, language and communication provision facilitates access to the curriculum for pupils with SLCN and supports school improvement priorities such as narrowing attainment gaps and improving behaviour.


 Improved spoken language can have a positive impact on learning, reading, behaviour, social interaction and mental health.


Support from speech and language therapists can make a real difference.
