Talking Together


This project is for: families with two year olds
It’s delivered by: BHT Early Education and Training

Talking Together provides language assessments for all two-year-olds in the Better Start Bradford area. Families who would benefit from extra support are then offered one-to-one sessions at home over a six-week period. These sessions help parents and carers engage their children in activities, play and conversation to help their communication and language development as well as their ability to interact positively with people around them. This can help children be better prepared for starting school and have a long-term impact on their literacy skills.

Who benefits? All two-year olds in the Better Start Bradford area are offered a language assessment. About four in ten families are then offered one-to-one sessions. 

Where and when is it delivered? Language assessments are carried out in the home shortly after the child’s second birthday. The one-to-one sessions, if needed, are then provided in the home or other convenient location.

How do families register? There’s no need to register – parents are contacted by BHT Early Education and Training shortly after their child’s second birthday, offering an appointment. Professionals can refer by contacting the team on:
