Episode 4: The Language & Communication Gap with Neil Leitch

Reading Time: < 1 minute

Alistair Bryce-Clegg and Neil Leitch return for a final episode to summarise their discussion so far on funding in Early Years, and how we can improve the language and communication gap in the sector.  

Practical tips for practitioners

Neil and Alistair emphasise how children are not developing the social skills they need due to a variety of factors, including not having time to develop a 1-2-1 relationship with educators. They also discuss how language is developed through engaging and sharing, which was impacted by the pandemic, and how the parental role is changing through no fault of parents themselves.
