ABC Radio (the Australian equivalent of the BBC) has a programme called The Health Report. In December 2008 the programme focused on children with speech & language problems. The programme is called Gap Kids, referring to children who 'fall through the gap' between different educational services.
From our experience this problem is common in the UK as well. The Sound Learning Centre has the treatments that can help children with speech and language problems through Sound Therapy.
If you fear your child is a Gap Kid, then please contact us for helpful friendly advice.
