Autism in children training
Why are SLCN Training Courses important to attend?

On average, every primary school class will have 2 or 3 pupils with SLCN. In some areas of the country, as many as 1in 3 primary-aged children will have a language delay.

According to a study by the Communication Trust, approximately half (53%) of the children and young people’s workforce responding to the study had little or no learning in their initial training around typical SLC development. This increased to nearly two thirds (60%) when asked about learning around identifying and supporting children and young people with SLCN.

Studies have shown that education professionals often lack confidence in supporting children with SLCN this is due to limited training opportunities in speech, language and communication area

Only 4% of the workforce felt they had accessed sufficient training to fulfil their SLC training needs, with the remaining 96% aware of the gaps in their knowledge and skills around SLC and SLCN

Early intervention is critical for children with speech, language and communication needs (SLCN). Without the right support early on in their lives, the gap between children with SLCN and their peers widen significantly.
