Talk To Your Baby 2019: From the National Agenda to the Front Line

Event Details

This year’s conference will explore and celebrate the arrival of early years as a national priority, looking at the critical window of opportunity from conception to age two for language acquisition.

Lucy Powell, MP for Manchester Central, will be providing the opening keynote at this year’s conference and she will be joined by academics, policymakers and front-line practitioners. We will explore local activity, key policy issues and how they inform – and are informed by – our understanding of early language acquisition.

  • Susie Owen, Deputy Director for Early Years, Department for Education
  • Cerys Griffiths, BBC, ‘BBC’s early years strategy’
  • Professor Ludovica Serratrice, University of Reading and LuCiD Centre and Sharon Freeman, University of Manchester and LuCiD Centre, ‘Language of babies in bilingual families’
