Common causes for speech, language and communication difficulties are social deprivation and child neglect. This is why social workers frequently find themselves providing crucial support to vulnerable people – children and adults – who have poor social and communication skills.
Without competences to identify communication issues and adjust his/her written and verbal communication level and methods, a social worker will have a greater struggle to enable service users to help themselves.
The Box training teaches how to recognise people who have a variety of speech, language and communication needs (SLCNs) and practical techniques to be heard and understood. These new skills will help the service users be more engaged and decrease the likelihood of aggressive behaviour. Social work staff will benefit from increased confidence, better results and higher morale.
