Research

Research is important to us at Tell Us All; we use it to develop and evaluate what we do. Here is a guide to some of the research that has informed our practice.

Why Stories Crick Crack Club   Storytelling is arguably the oldest form of education. So why is it so absent in our current education system?  We believe that all it takes to convince someone of the endless benefits of storytelling is to put it in front of them. But for those times when that's not feasible, we often refer back to the research and ideas found by clicking the button below.

Literacy and Social Exclusion: The Handbook National Literacy Trust and The Basic Skills Agency, 2005   Social exclusion is a complex problem that creates barriers to education, employment and society. Its various causes include low-incomes, discrimination and high crime. Families who experience social exclusion are likely to suffer impaired communication skills and those who experience speech, language and communication needs (SLCN) are at risk of social disadvantage.    This research is great for anyone who wishes to address the link between poor Literacy skills and Social Exclusion.

Ethnic disproportionality in the identification of SLCN and ASD The Better Communication Research Programme, 2011   There has been a long standing general concern about the progress and achievement of some minority ethnic groups in England (e.g. Swann, 1985) and one element within the general concern has been the specific issue of disproportionate representation among pupils designated as having special educational needs (SEN).

The relationship between SLCN and BESD The Better Communication Research Programme, 2011   Previous research has suggested that pupils with SLCN and those with autism spectrum disorders (ASD) are at greater risk of developing behavioural, emotional and social difficulties (BESD) than typically developing children and young people. However, recent research has indicated that it is important to distinguish different types of speech, language and communication difficulties and also different domains of the generic category BESD. Very enlightening research into the links and natures of SLCN, ASD and BESD.
