This book is about enjoying your child's development as much as supporting it. I speak first hand when I say it has greatly helped close friends to understand and support their child's language and development needs.
The author has made this book accessible to all readers, be you a parent, teacher or teaching assistant (in my case). In the past year I have been given the responsibility of leading a speech and language program and was very keen on building my knowledge regarding the subject.
It did just that. It is the perfect book if you want an introductory style text. It covers from birth to the age of 5-6 which is generally when speech and language develops. It is so easy to read and follow that I found I couldn't put that down and for a text book that is astonishing.
What I love about this book is that it is easy to read, separates topics well and offers you lots of games to play with your children to help boost their language.
In this day and age it is not uncommon to see SLCN in children and if parents just read a page or two every so often it would greatly benefit their child.
I recommend every school to have at least one copy of this book!
I think Nicola and Tracey, her co-writer, have done a great job of breaking this subject down, giving information about different stages of development and handy tips for things you can do to help your child. It's a good read and very accessible, and deserves to become a classic. Every new parent should have a copy! I think parents will find it both reassuring and empowering, and I can't recommend it highly enough to anybody who is concerned about their child's speech, or just wants to help them get the best possible start.
