Talk and play all through the day – speech and language advice for you and your child

Talking is a child’s most precious skill.

Learning to talk starts from the day a child is born – and even before that.

Talking and playing with your child, from the earliest moment, and as you go about your everyday lives together is the best way of doing this.

It helps people understand them - and helps them understand other people.

It helps them make friends and sets them up for when they start school.
