Supporting families of children with speech, language and communication needs (SLCN)

All our Speech and Language Link packages contain resources for schools to share with families, to support speech, language and communication (SLCN) needs at home.

In addition to this, we have our own open-access website, Speech and Language Family Support. This award-winning site was created by our speech and language therapists to give families access to clear SLCN information and practical resources.

The website includes a comprehensive range of easy-to-use home resources, information sheets and how-to videos to help support children, aged 4-14 years, with speech, language and communication needs.

Schools can include our portal as part of their support offering by linking to it from their website and customising its heading with their school name.

To do this, you first need to sign up to our free Link Community membership, after which you will be able to input your school’s name and postcode at the bottom of this page.

This will generate a link which can be added to your school website, so that your families can access the version of our family support website with your school name on it.
