C - Check It Out
Most people learn to communicate without really having to ‘work’ at it. This means we don’t really think about what happens and when it should happen in our development. Some worries can be about things that are quite normal and nothing to worry about, for example substituting some sounds for others at certain ages.
H - Have A Go
There are lots of simple things you can do at home to help. Sometimes the simple things make all the difference. Relax and enjoy interacting with your child, think about doing these things while playing.
A - Ask For Advice
If your child attends an early years or school setting you can speak to their key worker or teacher about your concerns. They will be able to do a mini assessment to work out what is best for your child and give you some advice.
You can also call Just One Number on 0300 300 0123 to speak about your concerns. They will be able to discuss this with you and give you some advice.
T - Take Action
For your child to make the best progress, little and often is usually far better to help them develop. Try and follow the activities or advice everyday. If your child attends an early years or school setting, the same activities will be completed there as well.
