£1m earmarked to help children with communication problems
1:10pm Monday 18th March 2013 in News
CHILDREN with speech and communication problems will benefit from extra support to prepare them for school through Hampshire’s Sure Start children’s centres.
A new team of speech and language therapists are providing specialist support to pre-school children thanks to county council funding.
The new service is part of a wide range of support available to young families in 81 children’s centres across the county, which are now run by charities with county council funding.
Children with disabilities in special schools are also set to benefit from extra speech and language support.
