Concerned about a child’s talking, listening and understanding? Are you looking for more information about speech, language and communication?
I CAN helps parents and practitioners by providing information and resources through the I CAN Help Enquiry Service, via the Talking Point website and in person through our multi-disciplinary speech and language assessments for children.
I CAN Help Enquiry Service
I CAN’s Enquiry Service enables you to speak to a speech and language therapist for free via the telephone, email, Skype or Facebook.
Call 020 7843 2544 to arrange a free phone call or Skype call from one of our speech and language therapists, or email your questions to firstname.lastname@example.org. Alternatively you can send us a private message on Facebook. We can help explain any aspect of children’s talking and communication development that you may be concerned about.
The first stop for information on children’s communication: www.talkingpoint.org.uk
Find free activities, factsheets, videos and information about children’s speech, language and communication. There is a progress checker for you to use to see how your child’s communication is developing and a postcode search of local speech and language provision.
I CAN Assessments
I CAN’s speech and language assessment services provide families, professionals or local authorities with a joined up picture of a child’s speech, language and communication difficulties. I CAN’s multidisciplinary speech and language assessment services are available to all children between the ages of 4-19. Assessments take place either at I CAN’s Meath Centre in Surrey (4-11 years) or Dawn House in Nottinghamshire (4-19 years).
