Communication and Language
A Children’s Centre Early Communication Support Worker (ECSW) can help with early speech, language and communication development. The ECSWs are not Speech and Language Therapists but they do have a special focus on speech and language.
The ECSWs run Toddler Talk sessions across the Children Centre clusters to support families who have concerns about their child’s speech, language and communication. The ECSWs give parents support in developing their understanding of their child’s speech and language development by completing language checkers and giving families speech and language development leaflets and home learning ideas.
You can contact an Early Communication Support Worker at your nearest Children’s Centre.
