Join our Chatterbox group for young children who are learning to communicate but have not yet learned 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. Our Chatterbox group helps you recognise your child’s unique ways of communicating and different ways you can respond to encourage their communication and verbalisation.  

Chatterbox Early Communication Group is a group-based early communication intervention for children and their parents. The group runs weekly during school-term dates or as an intensive school-holiday program and is suitable for children who are at risk of language delay or have a diagnosed language delay. The program includes language stimulation techniques and parent training to facilitate and improve early communication skills.  

Note: The weekly program runs in line with NSW school term dates.
