Come Talk with Me Updates

Please take a look at our ‘Come Talk with Me’ page on the Early Years Website to keep up to date with Come Talk with Me news.

Monthly Updates 

Please make sure you have your December Top Tip Poster ready to display for the first of the month.

December’s Come Talk with Me Top Tip highlights routines can be used to promote children’s speech and language, by repeating everyday words. Don’t forget we have the brilliant ‘Time to Talk’ home learning resource which will support sharing this message with parents.

Wellcomm Speech and Language Toolkits are now available to borrow from all Bournemouth Children’s Centres for early years providers to complete assessments, for use, not only within the setting, but also prior to making Requests for Support to Come Talk with Me groups and speech and language therapy. A short workshop is available in December to support practitioners on the use of the toolkit. Please see CPD online for more information and to book your place.
