It covers topics from use of AAC in Early Years, to teletherapy, to oracy in secondary schools for students with Developmental Language Disorder. The summary is available here.
Today the government announced that they will be providing £9 million funding to train Teaching Assistants to run the Nuffield Early Language Intervention (NELI) Programme.
