How can I support speech, language and communication? (for parents)

Talking to and listening to your child is the best way to develop speech, language and communication skills. Try to switch off background noise so your child can really focus on what is being said. If English isn't your first language, speak to your child in your home language too. Research shows that the ability to speak more than one language can be beneficial to learning language when young and increases connections in the brain to benefit thinking when older.
