Our book, Supporting the Development of Speech, Language and Communication in the Early Years came out last Autumn and it was meant to be an exciting moment. Reviewers were identified, blogs were written and we had started to get some good exposure within the EY field.
Up until now though we have had almost 6 months of ‘nothing much’ – like a fire that smoulders and smokes but fails to catch. Having identified an issue with the online resources, it has taken a lot of work to get them ready and available via the publisher’s online library.
The marketing and publicity to reach a wider audience had to be put on hold – it’s nigh on impossible (and unreasonable) to expect people to expend time and energy reviewing a resource which is incomplete!
Thankfully all that is behind us at last and the final chapter (the downloadable resource bank) is complete at last and can be accessed via the code in each book.
Templates, screening tools and programmes are all there to be used to strengthen interventions with children.
We can only apologise to everyone who bought our book and were frustrated by the fact that the resource bank option ‘didn’t work’. Thanks you for your patience.
We sincerely hope that readers will find much to interest and enjoy as well as a practical tool to support and enhance the development of speech, language and communication.
