Talk To Me campaign
You can support your child's language development by chatting, singing, playing and reading to them throughout the day. Our Talk To Me campaign offers tips on ways to interact with your child so they can develop their communication skills.
Making time to chat, play, share books and sing together with your child will support their language development and can be lots of fun too! When is your best ‘together time’?
