Please select a Format

This invaluable resource provides detailed information about the development of secure attachment, social skills and emotional skills and the links with interaction, language and communication. It includes checklists, advice and practical strategies to support children and young people who have social, emotional and mental health needs but also known or undiagnosed language and communication difficulties.

Social, emotional, mental health, language and communication needs often co-occur and here is a single resource to develop your knowledge and practical skills in these two key areas which can have a profound impact on children and young people.

It has been written to be accessible to learning support assistants, teachers, parents and carers. It is a useful resource for speech and language therapists too and is the core reading material for Elklan’s accredited course Supporting Social, Emotional and Mental Health of Children and Young People.

It addresses many areas including:

  • What is social, emotional and mental health (SEMH) and what is the link with speech, language and communication needs (SLCN)?
  • Theories to explain SEMH
  • Language and vocabulary development to support SEMH needs
  • Supporting social communication and emotional literacy
  • SEMH aware environments
