It's been very busy times at The Communication Trust recently getting things ready for Hello, the 2011 national year of communication.
We have been working on new publications to help increase the understanding of speech, language and communication needs, developing posters for primary and secondary schools, and writing 'Ages and Stages' booklets to give guidance on if the child in your care is on the right track with their communication. And this is just a few of the free publications and resources we are going to provide next year.
The Hello website will be a portal for information about the campaign and be the main way to order and download the publications above. It will show how you can get involved in the campaign, activities that are happening in your area and share the stories of people who work in this field.
The first part of the website went live today, which is very exciting! So if you go to www.hello.org.uk you will be able to view the brand new home page and the first section which explains what the campaign is, why it is needed and who is behind it. Please bookmark the site and more information will be uploaded shortly and the whole site will be ready next month.
The above is just a few of the things going on right now, watch this space for further updates.
