Talking Takes Off aims to improve speech and communication in children from 0-5 years old in Luton.
Speech and language provide the solid foundations on which to build the best start in life. They lead to vital skills which will guide children on a life long journey of socialising, learning and progress as well as helping them to achieve their full potential and wellbeing.
Our aim is to make sure that the importance of communication is a conversation everyone is having.
There is a range of information and support services available for professionals working with children in Luton that focus on their developing early communication skills at every stage.
Whilst all children will benefit from support for their developing communication skills at a universal level, some benefit from focussed, targeted support when a need has been identified. A smaller number of children will benefit from specialist support to help them reach their communicative potential.
We have put together a pathway that documents the breadth of support we have available for children in Luton. You can find details of support services available on our Talking Takes Off Pathway. Parents can also access our Parent Guide
Further support for each level is listed below:
