Help My Communication

Practical strategies to help autistic children or those at the early stages of communication develop attention, communication and increase vocabulary.

Is your child at the early stages of communication development?

Are you looking for ways to help them communicate and learn language?

When a child’s communication is developing differently to their peers, it can be tricky to know what to do to help their communication develop.
There are lots of different ways that you can help a child express themselves, as well as to help them understand the communication around them.
Often a tailored approach will be very helpful in further supporting a child’s communication development and to enhancing their language opportunities.
Throughout this short course, you will explore effective, evidence-based methods that can help children express their needs and wants and further develop their communication.
