Better Communication Action Plan

Better Communication: an action plan to improve services for children and young people with speech, language and communication needs. Creating an environment in which every child develops effective speech, language and communication skills and those with SLCN have the best opportunity to succeed is a challenge for everyone working with children and young people from speech and language therapists to early years practitioners and from health visitors to teachers and parents. This is a plan to improve understanding across the whole children’s workforce of the importance of speech, language and communication. Support for children with SLCN will be further embedded into universal services, including through Every Child a Talker and the Child Health Promotion Programme.
