Strong communication skills help us to understand what others are saying, and express our needs and wants, so we can connect with others around us. Come share a cup of tea as we cover various topics in speech and language development, including how kids learn to speak, what to do if your child is not speaking like others, what are executive functions and how do they affect your child's progress at home and at school.
