SLCo’s Parent Stories

As a parent or guardian of a child with speech, language and communication difficulties, it can be helpful to know that you are not alone in your experiences. Here you can find real stories told by some of the families connected to our Family Support Network.


Joe was diagnosed with autism at the age of four and finds it hard to connect with other children during play. Find out more about Joe and the support available for his mum.


Louise talks about her experiences with her daughter, Sophie, who struggles to express herself which causes her real frustration.

We would encourage any mums, dads, brothers, sisters and anyone who would like to share their experiences with us to get in touch.

You can really help other families by sharing your story.
