Language Builders

Our Language Builders programme is designed to support your child’s language development (between the ages of 2 – 3 years).

There are 4 sessions each lasting about 45 minutes.

The sessions takes place within a small relaxed group where you and your child can join in with fun, playful activities which encourage speech and language development.

Each session is designed in the same way so you and your child become familiar with the structure and feel confident to join in with the activities.

The aims of the group are:

  • To provide an understanding of Speech and Communication Development
  • Develop Attention and Listening skills in children
  • Encourage Turn Taking skills
  • Develop Expressive Language
  • Help children’s understanding of words/phrases
  • Understand the importance of play

The activities involve the use of everyday objects and toys you will have available within your home so can then be repeated

On our fourth week we look at the importance of using Books and Rhymes within the home and how this can help increase speech development.
