How to help your child develop their language and communication skills

This week you will find a leaflet for parents entitled ‘Helping your child to develop good language and communication skills’ in your child’s bag. We have created this leaflet as a source of strategies, games and advice which could be of benefit to ALL children in developing listening and attention skills, a wider vocabulary and in building good social skills.

Language and communication skills are a vital part of children’s development. They influence their learning and social development including relationships with their peers and adults. Sometimes the difficulties children have with aspects of language are not obvious and can be mistakenly put down to learning difficulties or poor behaviour.

Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions or comments about this leaflet or your child’s specific communication skills.
