'Close' creative project for children with speech, language and communication needs

Children aged 5-11 years with speech, language and communication needs are invited to take part in a creative project ‘Close’. The group will capture their near environment in photographs and sound recordings. A selection of the images and sounds captured will be collaged to create audio-visual artworks and displayed online in October. Find out more here:

As part of a collaboration with the University of Reading paediatric speech and language therapy clinic, parents/carers and children who participate in the project will be invited to answer some questions about their experiences with a speech and language therapist after the project is complete. Participation in this study will be voluntary and will not affect participation in the art project. You can find out more about this here or by emailing
