Music and early years speech and language programme reports on first year

‘Music for Change’ 2015-18, is a multi-year programme which enhances children’s early development and improve rates of school readiness among pre-school children in northwest Westminster, an area of multiple deprivation.

It is delivered by Creative Futures, a multi-arts charity which transforms the lives of vulnerable children and young people through high-quality arts programmes.

Devised to meet specific needs identified by the local authority’s Early Years Advisory Team, the project focuses on supporting children with speech and language delay in collaboration with NHS speech and language therapists from Central London Community Healthcare.

This report, on the first year of the project, brings together findings from Creative Futures’ own observations of the project, feedback from Early Years Professionals, extracts from reports provided by the speech and language therapists and music leaders who co-delivered the work, and a process evaluation by Professor Graham Welch from the University College London’s Institute of Education and Alice Bowmer.
