Why did ICAN decide to be a part of the SEND Consortium?
I CAN is the children’s communication charity. We are experts in helping children develop the speech, language and communication skills they need to thrive in a 21st century world. We provide effective, practical evidence-based solutions that change the lives of children with communication difficulties and support all children’s communication development.
“I am very proud that I CAN is one of the founders of SENDirect. We have known from the very beginning that the voluntary sector needed to work together to tackle the dearth of information for children and families with SEN. We also knew we needed to do it in a modern way embracing technology to meet families’ requirements. This is a very exciting project, sharing expertise from organisations across the health, education and social care sectors and I CAN is pleased to be at the heart of the programme.”
