From bump to babble and beyond – Speech and Language course with Jane Wilson – 11th January 2021
Jane Wilson is a Mum of three and a specialist Speech & Language Therapist. This course will discuss ways to support children and families with their speech-language and communication needs.
Poor understanding of and insufficient resourcing for Speech-Language and Communication Needs mean too many children and young people receive inadequate, ineffective, and inequitable support, which has a huge impact on their educational outcomes, future employability, and their mental health. Jane's goal is simple – to ensure that every child has a voice.
