Bercow: Ten Years On consultation for children and young people with SLCN.

Bercow: Ten Years On consultation for children and young people with SLCN.

As part of Bercow: Ten Years On, a review designed to examine support for children and young people with SLCN in England, I CAN and the Royal College of Speech and Language Therapists (RCSLT) are asking children and young people with SLCN to share their views on the help and support they receive.

The Bercow: Ten Years On project team are inviting children and young people to contribute in the following ways:

  • By completing a short online survey about the support received – surveys are available for those under 16 years of age and those over
  • By downloading and completing a paper version of the survey. Once completed submissions should be sent to bercow10@ican.org.uk or in the post to Bercow: Ten Years On team.
  • A sorting task activity is available to download for children and young people with SLCN who may not want or are unable to complete a survey online or on paper.
  • By submitting a Vlog sharing thoughts on the help received for talking and understanding and what it means to have difficulties with talking and/or understanding to bercow10@ican.org.uk

Information and guidance documents are also available for children and young people with SLCN, parents and carers and for schools / settings.

The survey is open now at http://www.ican.org.uk/bercowsurvey. The closing deadline for contributions is 28th July 2017.

This inquiry, taking place ten years after the landmark 2008 Bercow Review led by John Bercow MP, is in response to concerns about the support for children and young people with SLCN amid major changes in the education and health system.
