Supporting Speech and Language in the Early Years Podcast with Wendy Lee

In this week’s podcast Dale Pickles from B Squared is joined by Wendy Lee to discuss how schools can support pupils in Early Years settings with Speech, Language and Communication Needs (SLCN).

Many children are starting school with poor speech,
language and communication skills, more needs to be done to support them. There
is strong evidence around prevalence, with numbers rising to over 50% of all
children in areas of social deprivation having poor language that impacts on
wider development.

The impact of poor understanding, limited vocabulary, poor sentence and narrative skills can have wide reaching and long-term impact, not just through primary education, but through secondary school and beyond. The early years is the first port of call for many of these children and early years teachers and practitioners can go some way to identifying needs and supporting language development.
