Support for Parents


This section is intended to support parents and is useful for anyone involved with the child regardless of where they are supported (e.g. in the home, in a setting or at school).

The Worcestershire SLCN Pathway is based on the belief that parents are the most important people in a child's life in terms of making a positive difference to speech, language and communication development at all stages.

The Pathway offers advice and guidance on how to:

  • Identify children with SLCN
  • Support children with SLCN
  • Adapt the environment for children with SLCN
  • Make provision for children with SLCN
  • Plan for further development of staff skills and knowledge about SLCN
  • Find out about further sources of information.
