Afasic Helpline - a lifeline for parents
Are you worried that your son or daughter is not talking or not saying as much as other children of their age? Do you need to speak to someone who understands and can help? Then please contact the Afasic Helpline today.

We are the only helpline that knows enough about SLCN to help you understand your child’s difficulties, what help (s)he needs and how to get it.

We also offer a ‘listening ear’ if you just want to talk to someone who understands.  No query is too small or too silly. If you are worried or even just want to check there’s nothing else you need to know or do, please get in touch. Read about what we can help with.

Don’t delay. Call us today.

Parent drop-in sessions

Parents, if you’d prefer to meet us face to face, try one of our drop-in sessions!

We will be answering your queries in person on the first Tuesday of each month in the London office. Our team will be joined by a speech and language therapist who can look at reports and offer handy hints and tips.

There’s no need to book. Just come along any time between 10.00 am and 1.00 pm.

N.B. If you have any relevant reports or other paperwork, please bring them with you.

By arrangement, the Helpline may also be able to hold drop-ins elsewhere in the London area. If you have a suitable venue, or are holding an event for parents, please contact us.

What parents say about the Afasic Helpline

Incredibly helpful and informative. Gave lots of advice and supplied information and legal ‘stuff’ to back up my argument.
Sonia Capstick, Cumbria

There are few charities specifically for people with SLCN and Afasic have been great in giving me relevant information. There have been a few people I have spoken to now and every time each person has been very helpful, as well as understanding.
Mrs Goodwin, Berkshire

A great deal of time was given to me for which I am grateful.
Maggie Barnard, London

For young people too!
