Afasic Northern Ireland - unlocking speech and language
Communication is central to all that we do, it allows us to say who we are, how we learn, how we relate to each other at home, school and work - it is the key skill!
BUT: One in ten children in the UK experiences a degree of speech and language difficulty at some time.
One child in a 1000 has a long term difficulty and will require specialised help throughout their school life.
HOWEVER: There is help and support.
Afasic is the UK charity representing children and young adults with speech language and communication impairments, working for their inclusion in society and supporting their parents and carers.
Hello! My name is Mary Wright and as Director in Northern Ireland I am committed to supporting children and young people with speech language and communication impairments.
Afasic in Northern Ireland is working for their inclusion in society so that they can reach their potential and fully enjoy what the rest of us may take for granted, independence, work, education, leisure activities etc.
