New Speech Language and Communication Needs training event

A new Speech Language and Communication Needs (SLCN) awareness training event for staff working with children and young people in education settings is taking place on 3 February.

More  than 1.4 million children and young people in the UK have speech, language and communication needs (SLCN). Language disorder alone is one of the most common disorders of childhood, affecting nearly 10% of children and young people everywhere throughout their lives. In areas of social disadvantage this number can rise to 50% of all children and young people, including those with delayed language as well as children with identified SLCN.

Delivered by Babcock LDP, the session will:

  • Provide an overview of SLCN and development
  • Support planning and inclusive teaching for pupils with SLCN
  • Raise awareness of screening tools for SLCN and help staff to measure progress in language and communication
  • Increase understanding of the links between language and literacy
