Children with Special Educational Needs (SEN)
Language and Communication Needs
Dear Speech Link and Language user, Our Parent Portal is now live!
At Speech Link Multimedia Ltd we believe that every child should have access to support for their speech, language and communication needs to help them reach their full potential.
Our speech activities will help your child to hear the difference between speech sounds (sound discrimination) and to identify sounds at the beginning and ends of words (phonics). These skills are important for both talking and reading.
Our language activities will help develop your child’s ability to follow instructions, understand talking and learn new words more easily.
