Ahead of Talk To Your Baby 2020, which has the theme "chat, play, read" and builds on the current policy focus on the home learning environment, we have created these resources based on highlights from Talk To Your Baby 2019:
- Elizabeth Meins and mind-mindedness
- Anna Theakston and early gestures
- Ludovica Serratrice and bilingualism in early language
These resources are free to download and feature content around bilingualism in the early years, the importance of early gestures and "mind-mindedness" - the ability of a parent or caregiver to deduce what their infant may be thinking or feeling. Talk To Your Baby 2019 took place in Manchester - the first time outside of London - to an extremely enthusiastic audience. Building on that success, we are delighted to be taking the conference to Birmingham where our panel of experts will be exploring such topics as language processing speed, the influence of picture books on language and play as a driver of learning. We hope that these resources will whet your appetite for all things early years!
Talk To Your Baby will take place on 27 January at Millennium Point, Birmingham. Early bird bookings will be taken until 30 September. Find out more and book.
