Supporting Early Language Development

Endorsed by CACHE

Supporting Early Language Development looks at how language development starts, focusing on babies and toddlers up to the age of three.

Course description

This course looks at what recent research into language development tells us and this course offers opportunities to reflect on your own practice and provision.

This one module course delivers one CPD hour and comprehensively covers:

  • how newborn babies communicate with their significant carer
  • the difference between infant-directed speech and baby-talk
  • the effect parents’ responses to a babbling baby can have on their language development
  • strategies which help support children’s language development, and extend their vocabulary
  • the importance of reading, sharing stories and rhymes.
