Young people discussing their own communication strengths and difficulties.


Watch the video clip below. In the video clip, several young people talk about their communication, and their own speech, language and communication needs. The video clips are from a number of different young people who have responded to a question from the interviewer such as ‘what’s your communication like’ or ‘do you always understand what your tutors say to you?’

  • What are your initial thoughts as you watch this video?
  • How do the young people perceive their own speech, language and communication?
