Sometimes children have some early difficulties in their development. With the right help, they can quickly grow out of these difficulties.
- For example, 70% of children with delayed communication in the early years won’t have problems later in school. Those ‘late talkers’ need lots of opportunities to chat, play and read to help them grow out of their early difficulties.
- Some children will have long-term difficulties, so it’s important to identify what their needs are and make sure they get the support they need.
- Settings can seek specialist funding, equipment and support from other professionals to ensure your child gets the best start to their education, even before setting foot into our school.
- Every child can make good progress, with the right support.
