In the Words Up key messages, Be Careful With Questions, is one of the key messages which can support children’s language development through adult/child interaction.
Within the training practitioners explore the concept of balancing questions with comments to support interactions, enabling adults to model new language in context for children and provide the opportunity for children to respond to the comments which adults make.
As part of the Verbal Reasoning and Abstract Thinking resources, guidance has been created to support practitioners in ‘Making Comments‘.
