Who is What Works for?

What Works is designed primarily for practitioners - teachers, school leaders, early years practitioners, and speech and language therapists (SLTs) - to help you find the best interventions for those children and young people you work with that have speech, language, and communication needs (SLCN).

What Works  aims to provide the necessary information about a range of speech, language and communication interventions to help practitioners make an informed decision about what will work best for them and the children and young people they work with. Please see how practitioners have used interventions on What Works on our page for case studies.
 

"Completely relevant: it collects in one place information and evidence about all approaches I use. Finally!" -  Practitioner
