Almost 30% of children do not exceed the expected level of communication, language and literacy in South Yorkshire. That is over 4,500 children that are at risk of not achieving their potential each year.
Speech, language and communication (SLC) skills are critical to children’s development. Being able to speak clearly, process sounds, understand others, think critically and express their ideas are fundamental building blocks to overall development, and educational outcomes later in their lives.
SLC skills underpin other areas of children’s development. They enable children to understand and be understood, to build relationships with others, and to learn. Children with speech, language and communication needs (SLCN) have a high risk of difficulties with reading, writing and spelling.
Our ambition is that all children in South Yorkshire begin school ready to thrive.
