children who have problems with talking and understanding can be lonely and isolated - Afasic can help

If you are worried that your son or daughter is not talking, saying very little or has difficulties understanding what you say, you are in the right place! Afasic supports the parents and carers of children and young people who find these important skills difficult.

Help for your child is organised into three sections:


My child isn’t talking and I’m worried
My child is not talking and I'm worried - AfasicIn this section you can find information about what to look out for, who can help you and your first steps to getting help and support. There is also guidance on how to make the most of that help, such as useful questions to ask and the importance of keeping a record. Finally, there are examples of experiences from parents and young adults with SLCN.
