This page addresses many of the questions raised by parents and teachers about their child’s language development. It covers topics including bilingualism, delayed talking, when it may be necessary to see a speech and language therapist and how to encourage language development. Each question raised has a link to a website with detailed information and advice.
At the Leeds Child Development Unit, we investigate how children learn to communicate and how they interact with other people. We do most of our research by observing how children use language during specially designed activities.
