Who do Communicate Great work with?

Over 1 million children and young people in the UK have a long-term speech, language or communication need. That’s 2-3 in every classroom (The Communication Trust 2016). Early identification and therapy can help people overcome these difficulties, gain confidence and reach their potential.

Any person can have a speech, language or communication difficulty but some diagnoses place a person at great risk:

  • Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD)

  • Autism Spectrum Condition

  • Bilingualism

  • Epilepsy

  • Hearing Impairment

  • Language Delay or Disorder
