Good communication is the gateway to learning, friendships, academic achievement and success at work

TCT new webpage: Identifying speech language and communication needs

We have launched a new web area designated to 'Identifying speech language and communication needs'. The page brings together a suite of tools and resources that support practitioners to identify speech language and communication needs, make quality referrals and effective decisions to support children and young people’s speech language and communication.

Resources on the page include:

  • Guidance on what to consider when making a referral
  • TCT’s Commissioning Guidance for Early Years, Schools and Post 16 settings
  • Additions to the Cracking the Code poster series for staff in Primary & Secondary schools and Post 16 settings as well as a poster which outlines the rights of parents as set by the SEND Reforms
  • Local SLCN identification case studies showcasing examples of good practice.
