Early Talk

Today sees the launch of a collaborative project between the DfES and children's charity I CAN to extend the reach of the Early Talk programme into around 200 children's centres across England. The programme gives early years practitioners access to information and resources that help them to support the development of communication skills in young children.

Anyone with a particular interest in this topic may also find the Talk To Your Baby website worth visiting. The site is hosted by the National Literacy Trust, and contains a useful collection of research and resources.
