We hope that your company will want to support Afasic and so help children and young people across the UK who have problems with speech, language and communication.
Good communication skills are essential for life in the 21st Century and living with speech, language and communication needs (SLCN) can have a devastating impact on a child’s life.
All children and young people with SLCN are different. Some might not understand words, sentences and conversations or they could struggle to talk. Others may not know how to use language socially (listening as well as talking, taking turns, understanding jokes and talking to a teacher differently than to a friend) or how to use speech sounds correctly so that they can be understood.
It’s easy to take the ability to communicate for granted but, with your support, we can give children and young people with SLCN a better future and the opportunity to reach their potential.
For inspiration and motivation watch Abby, Damian, Justin talk about how their communication difficulties have affected their lives in a collection of short films.
