Attention and listening skills are key components for learning language and therefore are important for language development to occur.

Positive Adult and Child Interaction

The quality of interaction between an adult and a child can significantly influence a child’s opportunities to communicate and therefore positive engagement can help encourage language development.


Developing Vocabulary and ‘Information Carrying Words’

Within any sentence only certain words are vital for getting the meaning or instruction across to a child. These are called “Information Carrying Words”. They play a role in developing vocabulary and are used in everyday activities.


Social Stories

A social story is a short description of of a particular event or situation a child may encounter, it can be based on a situation they may find difficult.


Visual Supports

Visual supports are a communication tool that can be used in many situations and can frequently be adapted to suit the needs of the child at any given time.

For some children a structure free environment can be particularly difficult and may benefit from a framework using a visual timetable or visual cues.


Social Skills

Social or ‘pragmatic’ skills are the skills we use to communicate and interact with other people in play, conversation and to develop friendships.


Supporting Language Development at Home

Parents and carers play an essential role in the development of their children’s speech and language skills. Supporting speech, language and communication begins at home.
