I CAN Help

Concerned about a child's talking, listening and understanding? Are you looking for more information about speech, language and communication?

I CAN helps parents and practitioners by providing information and resources through the I CAN Help Enquiry Service, via the Talking Point website and in person through our multi-disciplinary speech and language assessments for children.

I CAN Help Enquiry Service

I CAN’s Enquiry Service enables you to speak to a speech and language therapist for free via the telephone, email, Skype or Facebook.
