Charity description

I CAN logo
I CAN is the children’s communication charity. I CAN’s mission is to ensure that no child who struggles to communicate is left out or left behind. Our vision is a world where all children and young people who struggle to communicate receive the help they need so that they can have a happy childhood, make progress at school and thrive as adults.

I CAN undertakes the following in order to achieve our mission:

Schools - We run two specialist schools for 150 children and young people aged 4-19 with severe and complex communication difficulties.

Training and outreach - We train teachers in nurseries and schools so they can better identify and support struggling children.

Interventions - We are developing interventions for primary and secondary school aged children with poor/delayed language who with the right support have the propensity to catch up.

Assessments - We run independent assessment services which currently help over 70 families a year to understand their child’s specific difficulties and the type of support they need to progress at school.

Information services - Through our information portal, Talking Point, we currently give expert information and advice to 30,000 parents and people who work with children each month.
