SureStart Ards Programmes


If there is concern about the amount of speech and language a child is using, they may be invited to attend the Chatterbox Programme.
This 6 week programme is delivered by the Surestart Speech & Language Therapist (Caroline) and SLT Assistant (Deirdre) and is specifically for children aged 2 1/2 – 3 1/2 years. Children attend in small groups (approx 6 children) along with their parents and each week has a different topic. The focus is on encouraging parents to interact with their children, building on the children’s vocabulary in each topic area.
Attendance is by invitation only.
