What is WellComm?
WellComm is a Speech and Language Toolkit for Screening and Intervention in the Early Years that plays a crucial role in identifying children with potential language difficulties and offers a range of customised intervention activities to help support their language development.
Easy to administer and score, the screening tool uses a unique traffic light system to help practitioners understand the child’s current level of speech and language and to provide a pathway for action, ensuring every child gets the support they need.
