Early Communication Development

Early Help Videos

Good communication skills are vitally important in ensuring that children are school ready and have the best possible start to their education and social development. The Early Help team have produced a number of videos on the services available at local Tameside children centres to aid the development of communication skills in babies and toddlers. These services are available for 3 age groups; Baby Babble for babies aged 3-6 months, Small Talk for babies aged 8-12 months, and Toddler Talk for toddlers aged 18-30 months.
