Hello! Campaign

It makes sense to start the blog with a big “hello” and what better way to do it than with the Hello Campaign…the National Year of Communication.

In the 21st century, the ability to communicate – to say what you want to say and to understand what other people are saying – is fundamental.

Speak Clearly Ltd is proud to support “HELLO”, a year to help all children communicate.

Hello aims to make communication for all children and young people a priority in homes and schools across the UK so that they can live life to the full, and we at Speak Clearly are glad to be part of the campaign. It aims to  increase understanding of how important it is for children and young people to develop good communication skills.

But did you know that in the UK today over 1 million children and young people have some form of speech, language and communication need? This is at least 2 or 3 children in every classroom – and that’s the children we know about.

Difficulties with communicating can affect children and young people severely and for life. In areas of poverty, over 50% of children start school with delayed language skills!  This puts them at a huge disadvantage to their peers as they struggle to learn and make friends.

    What a fantastic campaign! I hope lots of people will get involved with this.

  • When must i have diagnostic tests about my child when he is having a very hard time participating at class. His school claims he has a lot of Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder signs and also wants me to take him to his doctor. That’s costly. We want to try one of the free on line ADHD checks. Does anybody know of a good ADHD quiz that we may take online?
