Somerset Total Communication (STC) supports people with speech, language and communication needs (SLCN).
Somerset Total Communication believes that effective communication is a human right for everyone throughout their lives.
The aim of STC is to make sure that children, young people and adults with speech, language and communication needs have a consistent approach to meeting those needs in all settings and aspects of everyday life.
Somerset Total Communication advocates the use of a combination of verbal and non-verbal strategies to support expressive and receptive communication.
Non-verbal communication includes using objects, photographs, symbols, gestures, and signs together with speech to ensure that important messages are understood.
STC provides training and support for people who work or live with children, young people and adults who have communication needs.
