Dorset Clinical Commissioning Group, Dorset Council and Bournemouth, Christchurch and Poole Council are working together, along with stakeholders, to design a new speech, language and communication pathway using the Balanced System® Framework.

The vision is to jointly commission a delivery model based on the Balanced System® Framework that has strong leadership, wide-ranging training and development; with a universal, targeted and specialist offer in the five areas of family support, enhancing environments, developing workforce, early identification and effective intervention.

All children and young people aged 0-18 years old with speech language and communication needs are included in this project. The Balanced System® is a whole system outcome-based framework which aims to improve the speech, language and communication outcomes for all children.
