Learn how to support children’s vocabulary and early language skills with NDNA’s Vocabulary and Early Language Skills online course for early years practitioners.


What will I learn?

Research tells us that a child’s language development at the age of 2 years can predict children’s performance on entry to primary school and their future educational success.

The earliest years are crucial for a child’s future achievement and it is incredibly important that early years practitioners have the skills and knowledge to support and develop each individual child’s communication and language skills. This is particularly important for children that come from disadvantaged backgrounds.

NDNA’s online course will help practitioners to create a nursery environment that is effective for developing language and vocabulary. It is designed to give practitioners the ability to support children’s vocabulary and early language skills.

Key topics include

  • Develop strategies for identifying and supporting children with communication difficulties, including children with English as an additional language (EAL) and non-verbal children
  • Understand theoretical perspectives on language development in relation to own practice
  • Developing a language rich environment
  • The magic of stories to support and develop vocabulary
  • Home learning environment – strategies to support language development

Duration: 2-3 hours
