- Help your child to understand  how to have a conversation with you and siblings ie. by listening to each other then responding,valuing what the other person says and taking turns to speak.

- Play games and do jigsaws together.

- Encourage your child to draw with crayons,pencils,felt tips etc. If possible support them in recognising their name and trying to write some of the letters.
