Amazing sites!

Today I thought I would share some of the amazing sites that do amazing work to support children and their communication skills:
I CAN is the children’s communication charity.  Their mission is to ensure that no child who struggles to communicate is left out or left behind. Their vision is a world where all children and young people who struggle to communicate receive the help they need so that they can have a happy childhood, make progress at school and thrive as adults.

The National Literacy Trust is an independent charity that believes everyone in the UK should have the literacy skills they need.

One person in six in the UK today has poor literacy. This means they can’t succeed at school, are locked out of the job market, and can’t support their child’s learning and struggle with daily tasks such as filling in forms or reading labels on food packaging.

They are the only national charity dedicated to raising literacy levels in the UK.


The Communication Trust is a coalition of nearly 50 voluntary and community organisations with expertise in speech, language and communication. We harness our collective expertise to support the children's workforce and commissioners to meet the speech, language and communication needs (SLCN) of all children and young people, particularly those with SLCN.
We do this by raising awareness, providing information and workforce development opportunities, influencing policy, promoting best practice among the children's workforce and commissioning work from our members. The Trust is advised by specialist advisors and works with a broader network of partners.
