The book is brimming with practical ideas and tips steeped in theory and expertise. It is a book to dip into time and time again to enhance universal, targeted and specialist practice in early years provision. A professional book for practitioners and students of child development, inclusion workers and those working to develop integrated services for children.
During my 25-year career in early years I have never come across a more useful tool for early years practitioners. This book and the resources in it are a breath of fresh air for a novice who is developing an understanding of how speech and language develops in young children and beyond. The book also supports knowledgeable practitioners and leaders to embed good practice in their settings. The learning points and toolbox is a valuable addition. I wish this book had been available years ago.
