Speech, language and communication
Additional help, support and advice for those children who need it
Some children who have additional needs need more support than their peers. This is often provided in their school or pre-school setting. Families provide an essential role in supporting their child as part of this collective of support.

Support in education settings
Schools and pre-school settings will use the borough’s speech, language and communication toolkit with information and resources related to SLCN.
The SLCN toolkit gives professionals a strong knowledge base and the confidence to identify and support all pupils with SLCN. It is also useful for parents to read through and understand.
Additional support is available on the Communication Champions SLCN Padlet which provides advice on specific topics and useful resources along with parent guidance and support.
