How you can help
It's never too soon to talk to your child. Babies will even respond to voice in their mum’s tummies.
Don’t worry if you think they can’t understand you. You are teaching them new words by talking to them in a fun way and by waiting for them to try and talk back!
Listen and talk to the children you know in your lives. Teach them new words and about new things and give them time to respond to you. Let’s get talking together! You will find lots of ideas here to help you.
