Afasic supports children, young people and families affected by speech, language and communication disabilities. To enable us to carry on providing the help and support they need into the future we really need help with the core costs of the organisation that underpin all our work.

Situation

At least 6% of children starting school have speech, language & communication difficulties. This often hidden disability can have a devastating effect on the quality of a child’s life from an early age. Those affected struggle to understand what’s being said to them, or get frustrated at not being able to express themselves. Those with persistent problems can struggle to access further education / employment, reach their potential, or take an active role in their community.

Solution

Afasic provides a range of information and projects that offer help and support for parents and work directly with the children and young people. Afasic supports children and young people at key points in their lives, developing their social, communication and life skills and reducing their isolation. Afasic provides a source of information and support for parents that helps them understand their child’s problems, make informed choices and enables them to seek the help their child needs.
