"Home Talk Service at Warsop Children's Centre"

About: Warsop Children's Centre

(as a staff member posting for a patient/service user),

At the start of Home Talk I felt like my daughter was not talking as much as she should have been, but Chris helped me to see that she was good she just needed that little push, now she not stop talking, telling me everything. Chris was very helpful and helped me with other things like potty training, biting and other things, always helpful and listened to me and my partner. I would say the best memorable moment was seeing my daughter's face light up when I said Jack and Chris was coming to play and every time we all had a sing song my unborn child kicked along, think my daughter found the best singing and making loud noises.

My daughter's speech has come along quite well and she is starting to pick up bigger words and saying sentences. What I learnt from the sessions is repeat, repeat, repeat all the words so she rememebers them and to everytime we go somewhere still tell things like pink flowers etc. I would recommend you to anyone as you helped my little girl and me and my partner to speak more and encourage her to say bigger words and to speak out.

Thank you for your help

Thank you for sharing your experience of the Home Talk programme and it is lovely to hear how much you and your daughter has benfitted from the support you received from Chris. It is also lovely to hear Chris has supported you with other aspects of paenting, such as toilet training, and I will certainly pass on your comments to Chris.
