The Talk With Me: Speech, Language and Communication (SLC) Delivery Plan 2020-21 was published for consultation on 30 January 2020.

The delivery plan has been developed in consultation with the Royal College of Speech and Language Therapists (RCSLT) and the Flying Start SLC Clinical Excellence Network which has helped us identify the actions we need to take over the coming years.

This cross-government plan which includes Education, Health, and ‘Social Policy’, will lead to a more joined-up approach to engaging with families, and builds upon existing families and what works.

It consults on:

  • raising parental awareness of engaging with young children through SLC
  • identifying any SLC issues early and providing appropriate support
  • providing further SLC training within the childcare workforce
  • reviewing our policies and strategies
