Supporting Speech and Language at home

There's so much that parents and carers can do to help with your child's language development. Here are a range of resources and ideas to help you make the most of your child's time at home:

Babies, Toddlers and Early Years

The BBC's Tiny Happy People website has a fantastic range of videos, information and activity ideas  to help you in giving your child a really rich language and communication environment at home

Primary School

Afasic is a charity which supports and gives information to families with children and young people who have speech, language and communication needs.

There's some great information here on helping your primary-school-aged child with talking, understanding, listening and socialising

Secondary School 

Language carries on developing right through the teenage years, and for some young people it is still an area in which they struggle. Here's some information from Afasic about supporting your teenager with their language skills.
