How can I help my child?

  • Encourage your child to be as independent as possible. Let them do as much as possible for themselves.

Eg, Can they put on their own coat and shoes?

  • Encourage your child to use a knife and fork at meal times and drink from an open cup.


  • Enjoy sharing books and singing nursery rhymes.


  • Look out for numbers and letters as you are out and about.
  • Play listening games, see what sounds your child can hear. Are they loud or quiet?
