Pearson Clinical Assessment
At Pearson, we publish standardised assessments
and interventions that meet the needs of allied health, psychology and education professionals working with children and adults of all ages.
For over 90 years, we have worked with some of the most respected names in the health and psychological fields to deliver the most robust and reliable assessments that enables professionals to identify an individual's area of need, and plan measures that can support them throughout their life.
I CAN is the leading children’s communication charity in the UK. Established in 1888, we are experts in speech, language and communication needs (SLCN), the most common childhood condition that no-one has heard of. However, 1.4 million children and young people in the UK have a language that they will not grow out of, and up to 50% of children in deprived areas of the UK start school without the skills they need to learn (language delay).
I CAN exists solely to help these children and young people find their voice. We do so via our advice line for parents and practitioners; evidence based programmes for various types of educational settings; by running two specialist schools, and by raising awareness of the issue, so that it is better understood and addressed. Our mission is that no child should be left out or left behind because of a difficulty speaking or understanding.
