Monthly Theme - Family


This month we are sharing how we work with and support families. We know that families come in all shapes and sizes, but however they are made up, everyone will have a role in supporting children's speech, language and communication development.

Below are some ideas on how to explain speech, language and communication needs to siblings, as well as some of our resources for developing children's communication skills and a specialist approach to working with families in our schools.
