Learning to Talk

Resource Image: 

Learning to Talk, Talking to Learn is an early learning resource for childcare practitioners.

Information is also given on what to do if there are concerns about a child’s speech, language and communication development.

Presented by Professor Tanya Byron from the House of Tiny Tearaways and Little Angels, Learning to Talk has been jointly produced by the BT Better World Campaign and I CAN as part of the Make Chatter Matter campaign.

The self-study resource supports all workers in the early years including child minders, playgroup co-ordinators, pre-school teachers and nursery nurses to create communication-rich environments. The resource includes tips and examples of how early years professionals can turn every activity in their setting into a communication development opportunity.

In the video below you'll see a clip from this DVD showing Top Tips for Early Years Practitioners

The Learning to Talk DVD also comes with two posters:
Top techniques to develop children's speech and language
