Speech and Language

Stevenage ABC

Stevenage ABC (Achievement, Behaviour and Communication)


Led by Shelagh Mackey, Stevenage ABC was an initiative to support Speech and Language within the town funded by the Big Lottery. Stevenage ABC consisted of a number of initiatives during 2011 – 2012 that have now continued on as part of day to day practice within SET. This continuation includes the very popular ELKLAN Training.

In September 2012 SET was awarded a further Big Lottery Grant for ‘Literacy Matters’. This has taken up some of the progress from ABC and added to it a literacy dimension to promote communication skills.  This programme ran from October 2012 to October 2013.
