The recent I CAN report suggests that over 50% of children in England are starting school with some form of speech and language disability. The EYFS states that 'the development and use of communication and language is at the heart of young children's learning.' This book considers the significant role that the physical environment can play in supporting children's speaking and listening skills by encouraging inquisitive, verbal experimentation, not just answering questions! Flexible spaces that are easily set up and then stored away feature in this book. Lots of ideas for babies through to teenagers are included, which recognise the needs of children at different times of the day.
