A new campaign centring on the importance of speech, language and communication (SLC) in children from antenatal to five years old has launched this week.
‘Let’s Get Chatting’ is aimed at parents, carers and professionals across Devon, Plymouth and Torbay to help them better understand the ways in which children communicate, how we communicate with them and why it’s SLC is so important.
Over the past few months, members of the Improving Access to Communication Services and Support Programme from across Devon, Torbay and Plymouth have been working with Maxine Burns from The Communication Trust and ICAN. Part of this work has been focusing on strengthening the messages to both prospective parents and parents of children up to five years of age about the importance of speech, language and communication.
To get involved and stay up-to-date with all the latest from the campaign, be sure to check out Devon pre-school Speech & Language Therapy on Facebook.
