This lesson is helpful for anyone who may still be unsure whether screening for SLCN should be introduced or developed in their setting.
It is important to remember that there are some key benefits to screening for SLCN for your setting:
It enables you to accurately identify who needs support, and then appropriately target early intervention
Language supports all learning – so improving your SLCN provision should support in increasing attainment across the curriculum
There will also be benefits for mental health and well-being. If the needs of pupils with SLCN are not met, we know that this leads to poor mental health outcomes.
