You can use everyday routines to develop and boost a toddler and infant's speech and language skills.

Using the correct matching language in a simple everyday routine moment can provide the optimum language examples for your child. This will provide them with the best learning foundations that will impact on their development for many years to come.

​We understand that parents are busy

By thinking about what you are saying in a single MOMENT can help to develop and boost speech and language skills giving your babies and toddlers the best chance to have the skills needed for "formal" schooling success and give them confidence to interact with their peers.

​SO, let's take a single moment in an everyday routine
​AND Let's make it simple and easy!

​We are not suggesting taking the whole routine and scripting your every word. A lot of the time we are trying to just get through that everyday routine before they take of running or get frustrated.

​The key is to take just a MOMENT in a routine.

​To make these moments work, “Your talk” needs to closely match your child’s understanding and talking levels. Remember that how and what we say to our children in the early years has been shown to have a major impact in later academic success and social confidence. A mis-match can result in reducing the value of the everyday learning opportunities for your child. Matching how complex your sentences and words are and your child’s current communication skills really is the crucial idea to make these language moments have amazing results.

​There are so many moments a family’s everyday routines that can turn everyday talk into natural learning moments. It is too hard to think you will script or change your whole routine – just one moment is a fantastic start. We have provided with each Language Moment a FREE PRINTABLE for parents or carers that way you’ll have a quick reference guide with instructions.

​Don't waste another moment.

​Grab the download, pop it in a relevant place for all parents, grandparents or carers to see. This will ensure that this moment is reinforced every time the same way!

​And Start boosting your child’s speech TODAY!

​This idea of matching your language to your child’s speech development level is So important it is the First STEP in our FOCUS on TODDLER TALK Online Program. The program guides you in how to find out what level your child’s current communication skills are at and to see if the speech you are using in your everyday talk is at the right level!

​The program demonstrates how to make “changes” to your talk as your child’s understanding, speech and language grows. This not about changing your individuality as a parent. It is about finding the best way for YOU to match your speech to YOUR child.
