Raising awareness of specific language impairment (SLI)

One child in every reception classroom is affected by a specific language impairment, a little-recognised condition that affects all aspects of life, prompting a group of leading academics to come together and launch RALLI, a video led campaign to raise awareness. Specific language impairment (SLI) hinders understanding and expressive language and can impact on how children learn, form friendships and on educational development.  Despite how common the condition is, it receives little recognition, with many children and their families missing out on accessing much needed help and support as a result.

To find out more about SLI and to watch the launch videos, please go to RALLI’s YouTube page:
Please tell your friends and families about it!
