e Bercow: 10 Years On
10 years ago I was delighted to work with Professor Sue Roulstone gathering evidence for the Bercow Review. We engaged with and listened to parents, children and practitioners across England about their experiences of speech and language therapy services. We gathered our findings into this report as a key part of the evidence that informed the Bercow Report.
The Bercow Review found services to be highly variable and often inadequate. The final report highlighted 40 recommendations and the Government accepted all of these. There followed the National Year of Speech Language and Communication led by Jean Gross which provided many exciting opportunities for raising awareness of speech language and communication needs.
