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

SLCN Briefing for Health Audiences

To support all health audiences, and clinical commissioning groups (CCGs) and Health and Wellbeing Boards specifically, to get a better understanding of SLCN, its prevalence and impact for children and young people, The Communication Council has produced a short briefing paper. It also outlines some key ways health professionals can help to improve outcomes for these children and young people.

This briefing is available to download here.

The briefing has been referenced in guidance from The Department of Health to Health and Wellbeing Boards on children and young people with SEN and complex needs. You can find that paper here.
