The importance of communication is recognised in all areas of the National Curriculum.

A good foundation in speaking and listening forms an important part of a child's development and provides the basis from which most other learning can be developed.

If a child has any difficulties involving any aspect of communication it may affect their learning as well as their confidence and ability to form friendships.

A child's speech, language and interaction can be encouraged in a variety of ways, making use of strategies as well as more specific activities.

The links on this page are intended to help guide you, as teacher, in:

 
  • Identifying children with speech, language and interaction difficulties.
  • Learning more about a child's difficulties in speech, language and interaction and possible strategies that can be used to help in the classroom.
  • Learning about the roles of other professionals who may support the child's development of speech, language and interaction.
  • Using the 'Individual Responses to Need' (IRNes) as a guide to the roles that different agencies may have.
