There are 30 volunteers who are Communication Ambassadors in Sheffield. Three of them got together at Pye Bank School to pass some key messages across to parents.
It’s important parents talk to their children. Children with good communication skills do better in school make friends more easily and get on better in life. Children with underdeveloped communication can experience many difficulties from learning to read and write, to simply having fun and making friends.
Parents are the child’s most important teacher and have greater impact on their child’s development.
75% of your child’s brain development occurs between birth and the age of two. Good speaking and listening skills give children a positive start to the rest of their lives.
It’s important that parents understand the development of their child’s speech and language and get help if they are worried.
