5 Golden Rules to developing Communication and Language.

Actions Speak Louder than words - Use actions, facial expressions and tone of voice to help children understand and make out new words.

Model and extend - Whatever stage your child is at, repeat what they say or do and add one word.

Eye to eye contact - Get down to a childs level so you can see their face and they can see yours.

Ten seconds - Wait 10 seconds, watching and listening to give the child chance to take a turn.

A or B - Offer choices as often as possible throughout the day. Show and name the alternatives.
