Who developed this site

The Communication Trust, funded by the Department for Education amongst other funders, is a coalition of over 50 voluntary organisations that bring together their experience and expertise in developing children's communication skills. We raise awareness, influence policy and promote best practice amongst the children's workforce, policy-makers and commissioners.

To find out more about our work please visit our main site here.

We are committed to working with practitioners to ensure that all of our resources are as useful and effective as they can be. The Communication Commitment has therefore been developed in partnership with the member organisations of our Communication Consortium. We have also worked closely with a review group of primary and secondary schools and educational experts who have kindly advised on the development of the approach and the detail of the site.

This website is possible because of our supporter Pearson Assessment. Pearson Assessment is the leading provider of speech and language assessments for children and adults. Their portfolio features a range of reliable, standardised assessments that meet the needs of today's professionals.

"Since the launch of the national year of communication, we have been proud supporters of the work carried out by professionals and The Communication Trust to support children with speech, language and communication needs. We are sponsoring the Communication Commitment website as part of our ongoing support for this work, and hope that it will encourage even more schools to put SLCN at the heart of their teaching and learning."
