For Parents

Chatterpillars is a communication focused group for children between 18 months and 3 ˝ years run by a Children’s Centre Practitioner. The Speech and Language Therapist visits the group on a regular basis.  The group offers parents specific information on interaction strategies that can help to develop their child's communication skills.
 
At Chatterpillars, support is offered for parents/ carers to:
 
  • understand more about how speech and language develops in children from 18months to 3 ˝ years
  • recognise what your child is interested in and what motivates them to learn
  • discover when and how your child communicates best with you
  • understand the things your child needs to help their communication develop and grow
  • use a range of strategies to help accelerate your child’s communication development
