Spoken Language

We spend a lot of time developing children's talk and vocabulary.


Research states:

  • 75% of a child’s brain growth has occurred by the age of 2.
  • By 22 months a child’s development can predict outcomes at the age of 26.
  • 50 – 90% of children with persistent speech, language and communication needs go on to have reading difficulties.
  • 66% of 7-14 year olds with serious behavioural problems have language impairment.
  • 60% of people in young offender’s institutions have communication difficulties.
