An important part of our work is communicating our findings with those who need them the most, to ensure our research has the maximum impact.

  • Our Discovering BabyTalk outreach programme ensures our key messages reach families, relevant third sector organisations and the general public. View our resources for families.

  • Our LuCiD for Professionals programme disseminates evidence-based information to health and education practitioners. View our resources for practitioners.

  • We publish our findings in open access resources and present our research at relevant conferences to ensure that ongoing intellectual progress is accessible for all and furthering understanding of how children communicate with language. View our resources for researchers.

  • We also provide policy makers and commissioners information about the causes of poor language growth, the importance of early intervention, and how to choose the best evidence-based practice. View our resources for policy makers.

Impact Projects

As well as ensuring our findings are communicated, we are also actively seeking out opportunities to address needs identified by our research:
