Babies and children

Babies are amazing. They can’t talk, but they’re great at making their needs known without words.

Before long, though, they learn to understand and use the language and speech that they hear all around them. How exciting to hear that first word from your toddler! But there’s plenty for them to learn before then.

Learning to talk comes naturally to babies and children, but it’s not easy. Parents often feel anxious about whether their child is developing as he or she should.

These pages will help, with information on what to expect from your growing child, how you can help, how to know if anything is going wrong and where to go for support and advice.

Links on the left side of the pages on this site will take you to articles, blogs and a forum, and from time to time you'll see products you can download on the right side of the page.
