speech development in children


Speech is all about sounds – the way we think about them and the way we make them with our mouth.


Language is all about how we understand and use words.



Augmentative or Alternative Communication (or AAC) is the term used to describe various methods of communication that can ‘add-on’ to or replace speech to get around difficulties with communicating.

Eating and Drinking

Eating and drinking, or feeding skills, are learned behaviours and not instinctual as many people believe.

early literacy


Literacy skills include the ability to read (or decode), reading comprehension, spelling and written expression.

child playing


Stuttering or dysfluent speech affects the smoothness or fluency of talking.


Pragmatics refers to the social language skills we use when we interact with other people.

Young People

Young people begin to use speaking, listening, reading, writing, and socialising in different and more complex ways.


Communication is an essential part of everyday adult life.
