Colleagues in Speech and Language in Highland have been supporting the development of Oral Language in the Early Years through developing a support tool for practitioners and families – Words Up Early. Many Early Years Practitioners across Highland have attended the training available on the Highland CPD Calendar.
Following the Words Up Early (Level 1) Key Messages Training the guidance and the monitoring tool can be used to support practitioners in embedding the Words Up Early Key Messages:
