Talking Point

Talking Point is a website all about children’s speech, language and communication. It is designed for parents, people that work with children, and children and young people themselves.

It contains everything you need to know about supporting children’s speech and language development. Some children struggle to communicate and Talking Point helps you to identify if a child is having difficulties.

If they are struggling, then it tells you what to do. The site contains valuable resources which can be downloaded and used to support children, and links to lots of other places that can help.

Talking Point is run by I CAN and receive funding from The Communication Trust.
