First words

On a day out at the park with his Mum, observe a one year old repeatedly uses a sound that has meaning for him. He over extends the use of his word 'bap' to cover birds and dogs. Observe how his Mum's 'tuned in' interactions effectively supports his holistic development.

Good for looking at

  • Speech, language and communication
  • Learning outdoors
  • Effective adult support
  • Parents


  • Look out for the speech and language the child uses when communicating with his Mum.
  • How mum responds to the child attempts at communicating with her.
