    Default I CAN, free speech, language and communication help/advice.

    I CAN has a new free service to provide expert information to parents and practitioners about speech, language and communication.
    Below is some information from them about their service:

    I CAN is the children’s communication charity, and we are delighted to provide a free call-back from a speech and language therapist to discuss children’s speech, language and communication with parents or practitioners.

    I CAN Help Enquiry Service
    Concerned about a child’s talking, listening and understanding? Are you looking for more information about speech, language and communication?
    I CAN has launched a new service to provide expert information to parents and practitioners about speech, language and communication. I CAN’s speech and language therapists can help - whether you would like to check communication milestones or find out how to support a child with a known speech, language and communication need.
    Parents and practitioners who have used the service say they have found it really useful to talk directly to a speech and language therapist and to gain information about speech, language and communication development. They have also appreciated receiving information about training, research and other organisations that can offer help and advice.
    Call 020 7843 2544 or email enquiries@ican.org.uk to book your free and confidential call-back from a speech and language therapist. If you would prefer an email response to your questions please email your enquiry to enquiries@ican.org.uk.
    Find out more about what this service can offer at www.ican.org.uk/help.
    As the I CAN Help Enquiry Service does not include meeting and assessing children, the service is unable to provide specific advice about a child or the level of provision they should have.
    I CAN is the children’s communication charity.

    If you access Talking point from the I CAN website then go to FREE RESOURCES FOR PROFESSIONALS there are some excellent books to download.
