Speech and language e-learning programmes for Early Years Practitioners and Health Visiting Teams

Health Education England e-Learning for Healthcare (HEE e-LfH) has worked in partnership with Public Health England (PHE) and the Department for Education, to develop a new, free e-learning programme to support the development of children’s speech, language and communication skills for Health Visiting Teams and Early Years Practitioners working with children aged 0-5 years and their families. 

The Best Start in Speech, Language and Communication training programme will give you an introduction into SLC development, the importance of the home learning environment, SLC risk factors, early indicators of speech, language and communication needs (SLCN), a behaviour change model, assessment tools, and resources.

There is also a Speech, Language and Communication session, a bite-sized resource within HEE e-LfH’s, the All Our Health e-learning programme which provides health and care professionals with an overview of data and key evidence plus signposting to trusted resources to help promote children’s speech, language and communication development.
