This resource draws together the key findings from a large-scale investigation to find out ‘what works’ in SEN support. It accompanies the ‘SEN support: research evidence on effective approaches and examples of current practice in good and outstanding schools and colleges’ resource and is designed to inform the decisions leaders make about supporting learners with SEN in their settings.

A Generation Adrift draws together research which shows that many children and young people aren't being adequately supported to develop good communication skills and children with speech language and communication needs (SLCN) are often misunderstood, misinterpreted or missed altogether.
The paper includes current research from the Better Communication Research Programme, and also brings to light solutions such as the What Works database.
What Works is a moderated virtual library of evidenced interventions that aim to support children's speech, language and communication.
It helps practitioners find the most appropriate interventions for children and young people by providing a free and easily accessible overview of the evidence base for each intervention.
