Parents

Welcome to I CAN’s Talking Point for parents

This gives parents/carers the information they need to help children develop their speech, language and communication skills.

If a child has difficulty understanding language or speaking, they may struggle in nursery or school. If the problem persists they might require support, but with the right help, they can develop the skills they need. 

I CAN has developed a range of resources and factsheets to help children with speech, language and communication needs.
