Situation

Communication difficulties are complex and not easy to understand. Finding out what is wrong is extremely difficult for parents because clear advice and information, about this poorly understood issue, is very hard to come by. Parent’s waste months or years trying to find out what exactly they should do, all while watching their child fall further and further behind. During 2011, a national year dedicated to raising awareness about communication, more parents than ever will be seeking advice.

Solution

I CAN is setting up the 'I CAN Help' advisory service to offer parents who are concerned about their child’s communication the vital information they need to help their child. The advisory service will provide on the spot advice and information over the telephone and via email (and will send free useful resources) as well as offering a call-back service from a Speech and Language Therapist for more specialist guidance. During 2011 we anticipate we will field between 300-400 calls each month.
