Developing good speech, language and communication skills in early life is important if a child is to flourish at school and beyond. Building on a previous report, Public Health England has worked with stakeholders to identify the latest evidence and data on this topic and has now published speech, language and communication narrative reports.
The reports are integrated with PHE’s Fingertips platform and summarise data and evidence at local authority level to support decision-making and the development of joint strategic needs assessments to meet the speech, language and communication needs of local children. The reports will be joined by a SLCN pathway over the summer.
Reports may take a minute or two to load as they draw together the local data.
