Afasic England - Unlocking Speech and Language
Afasic was founded in 1968 as a parent-led organisation to help children and young people with speech and language impairments and their families. We provide information and training for parents – and professionals – and produce a range of publications. Members meet in local groups in many areas of the UK.
Afasic seeks to raise awareness and to create better services and provision for children and young people with speech and language impairments. It works in partnership with local and national government, professional and statutory bodies and other voluntary organisations.
Helpline open from 10.30am to 2.30pm Monday to Friday
The Afasic helpline is designed primarily for parents seeking guidance on accessing appropriate support for their children, and related queries. We regret that Afasic does not have the resources to answer questions from professionals or students on issues such as choosing suitable speech and language assessments, teaching techniques or research.
