Universal interventions support the whole population, i.e. whole class or whole setting/school and ensure all children have appropriate language and communication opportunities. This level includes workforce development, access to appropriate information, creating communication friendly environments and whole class/setting/school intervention approaches. Most children with SLCN will be identified within universal services and the large majority of these should have their needs met at this level.
