Frequently Asked Questions about children's language development

Families who visit us at the Leeds Child Development Unit often raise questions about their child's language development. Here at the University of Leeds, Dr Cat Davies and I have put together some brand new videos all about children's language development. Each short video addresses a common question raised by parents and teachers about their child's language development, including how to encourage language development, when it may be necessary to see a speech and language therapist, and bilingualism.

Just click the picture below to watch each video. Enjoy!
