How it works

You will have six home visits with an experienced Home Talk Worker

  • Sharing ideas and fun activities to encourage language development
  • Linking with the child’s nursery or childminder for additional support
  • Review of progress after 3 months

“Abigail has just finished her visits and I can’t believe how much home talk have made a difference to her language skills (and ours in teaching her) and in turn it has improved her attitude as well, she’s less frustrated and angry because she now tell us what she needs and wants”

Amanda, Home Talk Family

“My child’s speech has improved so much that she is able to talk to us… her tantrums have stopped! Our home is much happier.”
