I am a Speech and Language Therapist muddling through life with a newborn. I want to share my passion/views on communication. Babies begin to use their first words at about 12 months but they communicate from the moment they are born.
I am writing this entry while my baby girl of 7 months sleeps in my arms and I realise I’ve learnt more practical ideas from spending time with her than I anticipated.
I watch friends and family play with my daughter and some people just naturally get it, some worry about what they are doing and some avoid her at all costs to prevent getting it wrong. This blog will hopefully give people confidence and ideas on what to do to supoort communication development through play and everyday life with their own babies or babies they know.
I will be posting various videos/antidotes of my daughter and I doing everyday things, things anyone can do and I’ll see where this blog takes me!
