The baby and Toddler Spirals language development book is due to be published in August 2012. It is designed for parents, childminders and early years workers.The book itself is dedicated to all the parent, wider family and professionals out there supporting the nation’s children’s language and communication to give them the best start in life.
The ideas and information take you through the earliest years of a child’sdevelopment and give practical guidance that can be so essential when things are not going quite as you planned.
Jean Gross, CBE who was our National Communication Champion, has written a foreword for us and is very positive about the book and the positive effect it will have
The Spirals language series also has a range of home activities books to support language development at home in easy, play based ways. There are separate home books providing more simple activities to provide early support for the language of maths and science as well.
A space is provided for comments on how your child got on with each activity if you want to.
We find that early years practitioners also find these extremerly useful as stand alone ideas.
