  • Gather information about your child and how he/she learns best
  • Help you to better understand your child's SLCN
  • talking point logoProvide suggestions for you to help your child at home (e.g. specific handouts, newsletters  and/or refer you to Afasic (External Website) and/or Talking Point (External Website))
  • Have a look at 'Get Worcestershire Talking!' (PDF 104 KB) for fun ideas and games to support children’s speaking and listening

  • Support you and your child at transition stages (e.g. from home to nursery, nursery to school, class to class, school to school). Find out more about supporting transition ...
  • Ask for your consent before possibly seeking the advice from relevant professionals who visit the setting or school. These professionals will work with you and the setting/school to plan a way forward for your child. This might be a specialist from Health such as a Speech and Language Therapist or someone from one of the Local Authority Support Services. Find out more information about what can be expected if outside agencies become involved...

The Parent/Carer Questionnaire is intended to be used by settings/schools, to give parents the opportunity to raise any concerns they may have about their child's needs and the provision that is being made for them.
