Join the Chatterbox group for young children who are learning to communicate but have not yet learnt to speak. 

Parents know that communication starts long before children learn to speak. Your child may use vocalisations, pointing or facial expressions to get their message across. The Chatterbox group helps you recognise your child’s unique ways of communicating, and different ways you can respond to encourage their communication and verbalisation.

Ages: 2–3 years

Please register your interest online.
