Afasic transition courses from primary to secondary school - for children who have problems talking and understanding what others say

During the summer of 2017 Afasic organised and ran a total of 16 specialist ‘Secondary Starter’ transition courses for children who have persistent speech, language and communication difficulties about to move to secondary school. The courses were held in a range of locations across England and were attended by over 190 children.

These courses aim to ensure that the children taking part have the opportunity to make a positive start at their new school and are able to take an active part in school life.

After the course a parent said: “I believe he feels more confident and knowledgeable about what to expect in secondary school – it doesn’t feel daunting any more but something to feel positive about.”
