Afasic - essential factsheets about children who have difficulties talking and understanding.
On 1 September 2014 substantial changes were introduced to the Special Educational Needs system in England.  The government reforms aim to improve outcomes and put parents, childrens and young people’s views at the centre of the process.

This pack of factsheets has been designed not only for parents of children with ‘statements’ but for all parents who have concerns about their child’s (or children’s) speech and language development.
