Communicating Kids

Communicating Kids is a package created by the Sheffield Children’s Speech and Language Therapy Service that looks at what skills we might expect to see at different ages and stages of early childhood. 

Birth to 1 year

This is a huge year for development and your baby will be growing and changing in so many ways. Check the Resource Library to see the communication skills you can expect to see over the first year.

1 to 2 years

Children of this age will probably be using facial expressions to communicate how they feel and use eye contact and looking as a way of interacting. Check the Resource Library to learn more about the skills you may see over years’ one and two. 

2 to 3 years

By 2 years old children should be building on their earlier skills of looking, reaching, pointing and using facial expressions; enjoying sharing in interactions with others for longer periods of time. Check the Resource Library to find out more about this period of growth.

3+ years

By 3 years old we would typically see children showing awareness of and interest in adults and other children. Check the Resource Library to find out more about 3+ years.
