Afasic – SLCN Support

Afasic supports parents and carers with children and young people who have difficulties with listening, talking and understanding others.


The helpline offers a ‘listening ear’ if you want to talk to someone who understands.  The helpline can help you understand your child’s difficulties, what help they need and how to get it.


On the website, you can find free downloads, videos, booklets and leaflets about supporting your child, your rights and entitlements to support and where to find more information.
