Communication is the way we connect with people. Learning to communicate is the most important thing a child a will do. Oracy skills underpin all other learning and development and can always be improved.
From an early age children need to be immersed in language and they need adults to encourage and support their language development.
I CAN is the children’s communication charity. They are experts in helping children develop the speech, language and communication skills they need to thrive in a 21st century world. Their vision is a world where all children have the communication skills they need to fulfil their potential. Their mission is that no child should be left out or left behind because of a difficulty speaking or understanding.
