Talking to your child is the most important thing you can do to support them and get them ready for nursery, school and life. Learning a language should be easy, fun and interactive and it should come naturally. It’s also very complex and sadly many, many children find it hard.
To help you get started we have made some videos to explain each tip in more detail.
In the coming weeks we will be adding a new video for each Top Tip.
TOP TIPS VIDEOS
The way we talk to our children has a big impact so our speech and language therapists have put together some Top Tips for talking to your child. These are simple strategies you can use at home. They don’t need any special equipment or specialist skills. Sometimes it is the small changes that make the biggest difference.
Your child is learning new words all the time, and sometimes we need to keep it simple.
