Professor Sue Roulstone to speak at Talk To Your Baby Conference
29 Jul 2011
Talk To Your Baby is pleased to announce that Professor Sue Roulstone, Underwood Trust Professor at the University of the West of England, will be speaking at the 2011 Talk To Your Baby conference about her current research and her recent Department for Education report, The role of language in children’s early educational outcomes. The research found that a child’s home communication environment had more impact over early school performance than social background. The research also gives concrete examples of how to enrich communication in the home.
The 2011 Talk To Your Baby Conference will be held on 4 November 2011 in London. The conference aims to bring together professionals and practitioners from across the early years sector to discuss current research and practice in securing high quality outcomes for babies and young children.
Dame Clare Tickell, Chief Executive of Action for Children and author of the Early Years Foundation Stage Review, will be delivering a keynote speech on improving practice through effective policy. Other speakers include Jean Gross, Communication Champion and Viv Bennett, Deputy Chief Nursing Officer, Department of Health.
