A large part of my role involves helping you as a parent to better understand how your child is learning to talk and how you can help them with this.
I can’t tell you how many mums think that they are somehow responsible for their child’s communication difficulties. With so much advice from every corner and pressure to ‘do it right’ all the time, it’s no wonder that helping your child learn to talk can sometimes feel a little daunting.
Inspired by many conversations with parents I put together a short video to dispel the three most common myths about how children learn to talk and how us adults help them with this.
I wonder: can you relate to some of these common assumptions about language development? Let me know in the comments below.
