Speech and Language in the Early Years: Creating Language-Rich Learning Environments (Paperback)

Pre-order for despatch on publication.


Speech and Language in the Early Years is an accessible resource, packed full of practical ideas and techniques to support speech and language development in young children.

Learning to communicate is a dynamic process. A child needs a reason to communicate, the motivation to communicate and, significantly, a responsive communication partner. This book will help you to develop language-rich interactions to facilitate language development in your everyday work and will encourage reflective practice in your setting.

Key features include:

Activities and strategies designed for busy educators to dip in and out of as part of everyday practice, promoting speech and language development as well as supporting those with speech, language and communication needs

Templates and techniques for reflective practice, supporting the creation of language-rich environments and encouraging mindful communication

Chapters spanning from birth, to the transition to school, each exploring different areas of the learning environment

Offering readers the opportunity to extend their skills and confidence in their practice, this is an essential resource for early years practitioners looking to facilitate quality interactions with the children in their care.
