Balanced System® Scheme for Schools



Better Communication CIC is currently working in conjunction with NAPLIC and Afasic to establish a progression and accreditation scheme allowing schools to demonstrate the maximum impact for children with SLCN through use of The Balanced System® framework.

Register your school for the Balanced System® Scheme for Schools.

The Balanced System® Scheme for Schools fulfils Step 3 of The Communication Trust Communication Commitment.


The Communication Commitment


The Communication Commitment is an interactive website which provides a simple way to ensure all pupils communicate to the best of their ability by developing a whole-school approach to communication.

The Commitment supports schools to develop their own personalised approach to communication and helps schools to support all of their pupils, including those with speech, language and communication needs, to communicate better – which is part of the Ofsted Framework.
