Help these children who need this vital help to communicate at a better level. Being trapoed without words will only lead to further problems.

Special needs children are failed by the system very badly and it is a shame for a developed country like UK.

Because since my sons diagnosis of ASD in September 2015, we have only had a 1 hour session with a speech and language therapist who explained the service was almost non-existent and recommended us to seek private therapy. This is disgusting.

I have been to tribunal regarding SALT for my son, it was ruled he should receive an hour per week and the LA have still not put this in place! Tribunal was in January and the decision was made in February.

My son has has 3 sessions of SALT over a 2 year period and was discharged as they didnt think he was ready then put back onto a 9 month waiting list from a Senco referral ( who believes he has verbal dyspraxia)which i think is appalling
