Talk and Explore
These are play sessions within ‘Stay and Play’ Sessions at Children’s Centre with Speech and Language Therapists. They are a good opportunity for parents to learn new songs, pick up tips for talking and playing with their children.
This can be a helpful session to attend as a follow-up to Confident Communicators, to chat to a Speech and Language Therapist about how it is going, now that parents are using the strategies at home with their child. For more information, dates and venues, download the leaflets on this page.
