Bolton Early Years Integrated Communication and Language Pathway

Bolton Early Years Integrated Communication and Language Pathway

Introduction

Welcome to the Bolton Integrated Early Years Communication and Language Pathway. In Bolton, we have a collective responsibility to provide children with the best possible start in life. The Bolton Early Years Integrated Communication and Language Pathway has been developed to ensure a multi-agency approach, enabling children and their families to access the early communication and language support they need. This preventative and early intervention approach focuses on supporting the ‘whole family’ in an inclusive manner.

The Pathway is strengthened by a shared approach to have communication as a mutual responsibility between families, professionals, and agencies. It will enable children and families to access seamless, high quality information, advice and guidance to improve life chances and provide agencies with the appropriate mechanisms to plan, implement and support families on their communication and language journey.
