We all need a bit of extra help sometimes....
This page contains links to websites and leaflets that we have always found practical, helpful, no nonsense.
They have been recommended to us over the years by other professionals and by parents, and have been proven by our own and our parents experience of using them. We hope you find them useful but if you find they don't help your own situation please ask us more suggestions and help.
Or if you have any books or websites that you have found useful, please let us know.

everything you do can be turned into a game
Children take everything in. They love it when you chat, play and read with them, even when they’re too young to understand everything.
You can turn almost anything into a game. And every little thing you do together will help set them up nicely for the day they start school.
