Speech, language and communication support

Speech, language and communication are key skills for children as they learn to listen, talk, read and make friends.

A child with speech, language and communication needs may:

  • have a limited vocabulary or not speak at all
  • have speech that is difficult to understand
  • not understand instructions or certain words
  • find it difficult to listen or talk to others

If you're concerned about your child's development, use the Progress Checker from Talking Point. Produced by speech and language therapists, the progress checker will ask you a series of questions about how your child communicates and at the end give you an indication of their progress.
