The Communication Trust is a coalition of almost 50 not-for-profit organisations. They are committed to supporting all those implementing the SEND reforms to meet the needs of all children and young people with speech, language and communication needs (SLCN). They have been working hard to develop several new resources that will help practitioners to meet their new responsibilities under the Code of Practice and have also updated some of our existing resources to highlight where they link to the Code and how they can support implementation. Although Speech, Language and Communication Needs (SLCN) is the most common special need (DfE statistics 2014), it is a broad term and we know that families can struggle to find the right information and support. The Communication Trust is a coalition of over 50 organisations who support children and young people’s speech, language and communication. This includes a wide range of speech, language and communication needs such as speech or language impairment, stammering, cleft palate or mutism for example, as well as SLCN associated with other conditions such as autism, being deaf or learning difficulties.
