The Talking Bradford Speech and Language pathway

Welcome to Talking Bradford

We want every child under the age of 5 who lives in the Bradford district to have the chance to be the best communicator or talker that they can be - giving them the best start in life.

More language options for this video will be available on our YouTube Talking Bradford playlist (including BSL and Bradford community languages).

As many as 1 in 10 children may have speech, communication and language needs, but as parents and carers there is so much you are already doing, or can do to support your child.

We want the “Pathway” to be your map, your guide to what the Bradford district has to offer to support your child.

We spoke with lots of parents and they had so many questions about their child’s talking. We want to help you answer these questions by sharing videos, tips and ideas of what you can try yourself, and where you could go to find out more.
