Speech & Language Therapist, Fiona Barry, has developed a series of videos that show you a range of strategies for you to use everyday to boost your child’s speech, language and communication development. You can help your child thrive in nursery, school, and later, in the workplace, by becoming a happy, confident, chatty child.
Fiona presents nine videos covering the stages from pre-natal to five years old plus advice for Dads, Grandparents and why getting rid of the Dummy is a good thing!
What parents do at home with their children is more important to later language skills than anything to do with their income, education, class or ethnic background. Parents are the key to unlocking their child’s talking talents and it’s never too early or late to start. The way you play, talk and interact with your child has a real impact on how their speech and language develops and it's you that can unlock your child's communication potential.
Children who have a good foundation in talking and listening skills are more likely to grow up to make friends easily, do well at school, stay out of trouble with the law and thrive in the workplace.
In fact, the amount of words a child can use and understand at the age of 5 is a very strong predictor of the qualifications that child will achieve at school leaving age and beyond.
Fiona shares with you a range of ‘parent-child interaction strategies’ (ways of talking with your child) that speech and language therapists use. These are useful for all children – for those who are having difficulties and for those who aren’t. Small changes in how you communicate can make big changes in how your child communicates.
