Afasic - Unlocking Speech and Language
Afasic is the UK charity representing children and young people with speech, language and communication difficulties, working for their inclusion in society and supporting their parents and carers.
What we do:
- Around 6% of children starting school have speech, language and communication needs (SLCN) – that’s an average of 2 in every classroom.
- Our Advice and Information Services provide support to thousands of people every year, including Helpline and email support, free to download factsheets and access to our local networks.
- If you are a parent or young person wanting help and more information go to www.afasic.org.uk or ring our Helpline on 0300 666 9410.
