Supporting the Development of Speech, Language and Communication in the Early Years

By Diana McQueen and Jo Williams

An essential resource, this book contains a wide variety of online resources, including phonological and sound awareness documents assessment tools, and recording forms that can be downloaded straight to your device, providing excellent materials and activities to use in the classroom.

Written by speech and language therapists and designed exclusively for Early Years practitioners, this book provides a complete overview of how children acquire language and what language impairments look like at this age. 

You will find both strategic and practical advice on how to manage and encourage the development of speech and language skills.

Creating the optimum communication environment for every child in your setting is an important part of what the book offers. 

Equally, practitioners are supported to be able to recognise the features of specific language difficulties such as Developmental Language Disorder (DLD) and feel confident to intervene when children are struggling.
