Details

The better communication research programme (BCRP) focuses on children and young people with speech, language and communication needs (SLCN). This is the term used by the Department for Education to refer to pupils with primary language difficulties

The first interim report was published in December 2010 and reported on the first phase of the research programme. Five projects were described and their initial findings reported.

The second interim report provides information on the work of the BCRP that mainly took place during the period July 2010 to July 2011. The report provides a summary of the aims of each study, what was done and the results so far. In some cases work is ongoing and will end in March 2012, in others the project is now complete.
