It is estimated that one in 10 children has a speech, language or communication need (SLCN) that needs long-term support.
This means that between two and three pupils in every classroom have some kind of communication difficulty that affects how they learn and participate in learning.
With the responsibility for supporting all SEND pupils now falling on teachers, this unit aims to give you the confidence to provide in-classroom support for pupils with SLCN to ensure that all pupils make the best progress possible.
