The preferred outcomes of children with speech, language and communication needs and their parents

This report investigated the preferred outcomes valued by children and young people with speech, language and communication needs (SLCN) and their parents. The findings are considered in terms of the implications for practitioners, in both health and education, for research, and for policy development.

Detail

The Better Communication Research Programme (BCRP) was commissioned as part of the Better Communication Action Plan, the government’s response to the Bercow review of services for children and young people with speech, language and communication needs.

This report presents the findings of five projects that were part of the BCRP.

This is one of 10 publications reporting the results from individual BCRP projects. These contribute to a series of four thematic reports and the main report on the BCRP overall in which we integrate findings and present implications for practice, research and policy from the BCRP as a whole.
