A charity which supports children suffering with speech, language and communication difficulties said they are "disappointed" with The Sun's front page today. I CAN described Roy Hodgson as "a high-achieving man, and a great role model for all young people with communication difficulties".
– I CAN Spokesperson
We know that children with communication difficulties are often at risk of bullying. Therefore it is disappointing to see that Roy Hodgson’s speech has been singled out in the mainstream media for entertainment value.
For the 1.2 million children in the UK who suffer with long-term speech, language and communication difficulties, this does little to help their self-esteem, confidence and belief in their own abilities.
