Effects of Trauma on Speech, Language & Communication

This course explores how adversity and trauma can impact speech and language development. It will define what speech and language therapists are referring to when talking about speech, language and communication and what typical speech and language development looks like. It will support you in understanding how this typical development is delayed or truncated due to trauma and the potential impact of speech, language and communication needs on learning, emotional regulation and social interaction.

The course should take approximately 1 hour to complete 

This course has been designed to meet SRA competency (A & C) and HCPC and SWE standards

No Wrong Door identified that 62% of its care experienced young people had communication needs but only two of the children had previously seen a speech and language therapist. This reflects a highly present but under recognised additional need in children subject to care proceedings. It can be difficult to identify whether speech, language and communication difficulties exist as they are not always obvious. This course will equip you with the knowledge to ask the right questions and, if needed, to instruct the right expert.
