Code: CPD/22/80 SEND: SLCN Screening Tool - Secondary

Our screening assessment tool uses pictures and tasks to help identify children who may have speech, language or communication difficulties.  By completing the screen, you will know if the child would benefit from some extra support or whether they would benefit from a referral to the Children's Speech and Language Therapy Service (CSLT).

To ensure you get the most out of screening tool, we have developed a video which talks you through completing the screen and provides you with some useful tips, which we will send to you under separate cover.
