• Recognise key characteristics of specific speech impairment that require intervention
• Identify the potential long-term implications of specific speech impairment
• Identify when it may be appropriate to refer a child to a speech and language therapist, an audiologist, or the child development team for multi-professional assessment
• Know how to access the key agencies providing advice and support for parents of children with speech, language and communication difficulties
