Talking Together Evaluation

Talking Together is a programme we deliver in partnership with NHS Lothian Speech and Language Therapy. The programme supports families to develop communication and language skills with very young children. They offer a range of interventions, which include groups, one-to-one appointments and home visits. Training is also provided for staff in Early Years Centres and other settings.

An external evaluation of the programme was carried out by Ian Clark of Iconic Consulting. In the report he says:

"The evaluation demonstrated that Talking Together has delivered interventions to families who would otherwise not be supported or have to wait for support from the community speech and language therapy team because of their limited capacity.

"Improvements in children’s language and communication [was reported] and this was highlighted as the project’s most significant impact [which was] the aim of Talking Together. Improvements in parent/carers’ mental health and wellbeing were also highlighted as an important impact. At such a crucial time in a child’s development, it is of the greatest importance that parents/carers’ support for their children is recognised and valued."
