Early language development plays a critical role in supporting children’s overall development. How young children develop and understand language is a complex topic and is one of the key developmental milestones of early childhood. Language allows children to identify and communicate feelings, needs and emotions of others. Learning to understand, use and enjoy language is the critical first step in literacy, and the basis for learning to read and write.

Understanding how young children learn skills to communicate and form language is essential to supporting their development and future language learning skills Speech Pathologist Stephi West will address key areas in early language development including:

  • Engaging children with language from birth to develop strong literacy skills and to further develop knowledge of early literacy and language development
  • Parent/family engagement to develop ways to effectively support their child’s language development

Recommended resources for children, educators, parents and primary carers.
