Learning to talk


Learning to talk for 2 - 3 year olds

You and your child will see a member of your health visiting team at about 2 to 2-and-a-half years to talk about your child’s development. If your child goes to nursery, they will also have a progress review with their key worker.

If your child needs a little extra support, your health visitor and nursery can help. They may also put you in touch with a speech and language therapy team, or signpost you to local activities.

At the 2 – 2 ½ year development review we’ll also discuss good sleeping habits, toilet training, speech and communicating with others.
