Handbook / Teacher's Guide
A highly visual and accessible resource for everyone working with babies and very young children. The focus of the book is to highlight the very real communication capabilities and preferences of young babies and to help readers consider how opportunities for communication can be provided very easily, without huge expense in all sorts of early years environments. Specialist working practices with very young babies do not currently take enough account of the importance of early brain development and secure attachment with adults as pre-cursors to effective global development - in particular social, emotional and communication development. Babies need to interact directly with other nuturing, responsive and genuinely caring human beings, to hear people talking about what they are seeing and experiencing in order for them to develop optimal language skills.
