Speech, language and communication are all important to a child's overall development. They are used to interact with others, explore the environment, make sense of everyday experiences, access information and understand concepts, organise thoughts and formulate ideas and to express your feeling and understand the feelings of others.

Speech is basically vocalised language. Usually this is learnt before leaning to write. We use speech to articulate and express ideas, thoughts and feelings through vocalised sound. With speech, symbols are not written or signed they are spoken as sounds. Gestures and signing are forms of speech for individuals who may have a disability or an impairment. English has over 40 different sounds/phonemes however the number of sounds children need to learn depends on their chosen language.

Language can be very specific. It is a set of symbols that are written, spoken or signed that enable us to communicate and convey meanings to others and enable us to understand what others are saying to us. Language includes a complex set of rules. In the English language, words can be added together to make phrases and sentences and some words can be added to and changed. For example, adding an ‘s’ to show more than one of something or adding 'ed’ to show something happened in the past. Linguists suggest that once users understand, use and have mastered the rules they will be able to convey anything they wish to. At first children cannot use the rules, toddlers begin by pointing at objects and saying just one word, but after a while they learn how to construct sentences.

Communication is the process of conveying a message or meaning to establish a shared understanding to others. There are several ways in which we communicate all of which involve all our senses. For example, spoken, written, pictures, sounds, symbols. We also use non-verbal communication such as facial expressions, gestures and body language. Being able to listen to the person

    1.1- Speech is vocalised language. It is usually learnt before the written language. In speech the symbols are not written or signed but are actual spoken language as sounds. Usually from the age of 6 weeks babies will make cooing sounds to show pleasure. They make these sounds as the mouth has not yet fully developed properly. From 6-9 months the baby will babble as if they are practising sounds. By 9-12 months the range of sounds that babies produce becomes more limited and reflects the sound…
