Language through Listening concentrates on the development of the pre-linguistic skills necessary to expressive language.
Communication between two people starts with looking at each other, listening and attending to the other person and waiting for your turn to respond. These foundations to verbal language are very often delayed in young children, and need putting in place in order to support language development. Young children often have difficulties in one or more of these pre-linguistic areas.
Once early pre-linguistic skills are established the other Black Sheep Press Narrative packs can be used to support expressive language.
