The Ultimate Guide to SLCN

Part 1 - Background

Page 1: Preface


Here at Speech Link Multimedia Ltd, we are on a mission to bring Speech and Language Therapy knowledge and expertise to every school in order to help all children reach their full communication potential. We aim to support all school staff – wherever you may be – to identify and support Speech, Language and Communication Needs (SLCN) successfully, so that no child is left behind at school or in life.

To this end, we have developed a series of innovative and award-winning support packages for children with SLCN from Early Years Foundation Stage through to Key Stage 3.

As qualified Speech and Language Therapists, who have both worked extensively in schools throughout our careers, we are really passionate about this cause and we have drawn on our own real experience as well as the world of research to pour our expertise into these pages.

We hope you’ll join us on our mission – and that’s why we’ve written this book. Inside, you will find an accessible reference guide to help you identify and understand the needs of the children in your classroom, along with practical strategies that you can put in place right now in order to support them throughout their education. We will explain diagnoses and terminology relating to SLCN and attempt to banish some common misconceptions.

To find out more about our packages, see pages 140-143.
