Who developed this site
The Communication Trust, funded by the Department for
Education amongst other funders, is a coalition of nearly 50
voluntary organisations that bring together their experience and
expertise in developing children's communication skills. We raise
awareness, influence policy and promote best practice amongst the
children's workforce, policy-makers and commissioners.

We are committed to working with practitioners to ensure that
all of our resources are as useful and effective as they can be.
The Communication Commitment has therefore been developed in
partnership with the member organisations of our
Communication Consortium. We have also worked closely with a
review group of primary and secondary schools and educational
experts who have kindly advised on the development of the approach
and the detail of the site.
This website is possible because of our supporter Pearson
Assessment. Pearson Assessment is the leading provider of
speech and language assessments for children and adults. Their
portfolio features a range of reliable, standardised assessments
that meet the needs of today's professionals.
"Since the launch of the national
year of communication, we have been proud supporters of the work
carried out by professionals and The Communication Trust to support
children with speech, language and communication needs. We are
sponsoring the Communication Commitment website as part of our
ongoing support for this work, and hope that it will encourage even
more schools to put SLCN at the heart of their teaching and
