Have a look on this website, The Communication Trust produced 4 films to help parents encourage their children’s communication development. Narrated by comedian Kathy Burke, the films are full of useful advice on how parents can encourage their child to talk and how they can interact with them. The 4 films are divided into age groups, for parents who have children up to the age of 3. If you’re a member of the children’s workforce, you can download a guidance document on how to get the best from the films whilst working with parents. The videos are portrayed through the eyes of a child. When you have watched the videos, read the information for professionals about how to support speech, language and communication. Make a note of anything new you learn and try this out in your practice next time you are with children.
