How can I help my child with their talking?


Language is the foundation of children’s learning and underpins all aspects of their non physical development. It contributes to their ability to manage emotions and communicate feelings, establish and maintain relationships, and to learn to read and write (Law et al 2017).


It can be hard to know where to start when looking to support your child’s early communication development. We’ve put together a range of information, advice and activities to support babies and children up to 5 years old.
