I want to raise baby as a bilingual but that's linked to slight speech delay?
Samantha’s iPhone

my eldest two have speech delays.

48:44
which is a big concern for us with the babies, as they copy each other.
Dani Hayward-Badenes
48:47
yes- we are the same. we would like to bring our baby up bilingually too- English/ Brazilian Portuguese but have concerns that it will delay her speech .
Helen Arana

Any tips on raising bilingual children? My son is 9 months. Thanks :-)
Petra
53:47
second that re: bilingual please :)
Anna
55:14
this is really helpful
Anna
55:55
second that as well, tips for raising a child bilingual would be great
Cátia Caçote
57:05
please,can we discuss strategies to teach a bilingual baby?thank you

on a similar note, we would like our daughter to learn her grandparents’ language (outside of lockdown, they look after her 3 days a week). Any tips in this situation? I think they tend to code mix a lot!

I think speech delay is the wrong term. Children hearing multiple languages take longer to speak because they are processing more words and more sounds, etc. a speech delay, as a teacher, signifies something developmentally where there is no major other cause as to why the child has/uses less language than they should.

love all what's been said so far!! seems so simple, but haven't really thought about it 🤦🏻‍♀️ especially the meaningless words
Sam's iPhone
01:02:07
hi - like others have said can we have some tips on multiple languages as there are 3 languages that are spoken in the house and would like my little one to be able to learn and communicate
Ana
01:03:36
hi! we are in a bilingual house too. we tend to say the words in both languages. is that ok?
Samantha’s iPhone
01:04:12
my eldest didn’t speak till 2 and has a phonological speech delay. we were so caught up with her delay we missed our middle child’s because we were comparing. he to us was doing what we should expect and never realised no one but us could understand him. although his delay has been put down to him being autistic
Hannah
01:09:35
My 7 month old has a posterior younger tie. What should we look out for that may indicate there are associated problems with speech development when he starts to say words? How common is it for children to have to access speech and language support because of this?.
Petra
01:10:00
with choosing, isn’t there a chance of getting kids used to having things their way too much? I mean you know how we don’t always get what we want in life, can that possibly give them the wrong impression that whatever they want they get? I know that’s more of a behaviour question but it relates in a way?
Nina
01:10:30
Bilingual upbringing - I speak exclusively German with baby, my partner exclusively English. But living in the UK, I will have to address my son in English at times, especially if I want include another English speaking person in our communication. Should I repeat sentence in both languages in those situations?
Morgan
01:11:09
I would say Petra, it's still a choice. Only two things. If what they want isn'tan option they don'tjust get it. You are still in control of the choices.
Katie
01:11:15
Thanks for that! Can you give an idea of word ability by age?
Morgan
01:11:42
I work with children with autism and I will often give two choices.
Mad & Alma
01:11:49
Agree, speech/communication milestones would be really good to know!
Mahida Begum
01:12:44
My son has been regressing greatly, during the lockdown especially in speech and understanding. He is 19 months and doesn’t have any words just babble. He is presenting early signs of autism, however I have been advised by HV to wait and see after 2 month but I am worried he will regress further. Please advice what I should do?
Laura
01:15:11
Can you give any advice or links to advice for babies (7.5months) with a cleft palate please - soft palate at the backWe've been given advice to discourage growling in the throat, does this include humming and gargling, eg. discourage all throat sounds?His operation has been delayed due to lock down and so we now fear his speech will be effectedThank you!
Rosie
01:17:53
about bilingual language, I want mine to learn 3 languages with my child. should I repeat in one moment and translate the 3 languages. or speak one language only for each occasion?
Xenia Capacete Caballero
01:20:10
I speak to my son in Catalan, my husband in Spanish, so not sure how my son will do with English.
Aurelie
01:20:25
how about trilingual household I.e dad speaks one language, Mum speaks another one and speak English together ?
Anna
01:20:44
regarding bilingualism: is it ok to mix the languages you speak with your child? my partner doesn’t speak German so I don’t want to exclude him when it’s the 3 of us together.
Sam's iPhone
01:23:13
in
Mari
01:23:19
At what age/point should I worry and seek professional help?
Sam's iPhone
01:23:58
same question as Aurelie :)
Tz
01:25:16
Have you ever come across a prolonged dribble and mouth muscles affecting speech?
Joanne Lauricourt-Attang
01:25:33
My husband speaks Italian and we were initially worried about his language development if he spoke to him in Italian so he held off. our son is two years old now would it be too late to start? If not would you recommend he talk in Italian 100% of the time even though he's been talking in English all this time?
Mari
01:26:28
Since lockdown and working from home we do lots of work calls holding our 9mo daughter. Is she likely to pick up any speech from them?
Oksana Krysiak-Foria
01:27:02
if our family is trilingual shall we start first with two or straight away with 3 ?
Jessica Armstrong Taylor
01:27:14
the choosing things also teaches them a great lesson about consent and body autonomy, and that they’re not going to be forced into something they don’t want to do
Samantha’s iPhone
01:27:14
yes we were told to give choices with our 6 year old to encourage speech then again with our 3 year old to encourage and reinforce correct words and language.
Fati
01:27:28
my son is 21months old and he is more comfortable to sign than actually use his voice, how do I encourage him to talk instead?
Freya
01:27:35
I feel perhaps you still say no to them outside of those choice giving times, so there is still that balance for them!
Sandrine K
01:27:53
m’y son is 16 months. Bables a lot ! he doesn’t respond to his name though. But plenty of eye contact and a few words; bye, allo, clap, yes, no, mama, dad. he’s been raised bilingual. French and English. should I worried he doesn’t talk much ?
Aimee Reilly
01:28:04
as a teacher and mum, I'm in full support of choice giving. It's a controlled choice lead by the adult but allows child to make some decisions and have independent thought. even in a school setting, choices are given to reduce frustration which reduces "behaviour"
Morgan
01:29:58
a lot of children are "diagnosed" and get help in a school when a school refers them. usually between 5 and 8, I'd say.
Morgan
01:30:37
that what I've noticed. and a specialist will come and watch them in school, especially with autism.
Samantha’s iPhone
01:31:06
hv did our referal to hospital who then sent further referrals. we did end up relocating to access better services for him.
Emily H
01:31:51
Sorry back to bilingual. My husband can speak French well, but isn’t keen to speak it due to his grammar and it being hard work. What is the second best option to bring up with a second language without one parent constantly speaking that language?
Ashlea Whiting
01:32:07
apologies where can I find the link to Lucy’s YouTube videos?
Jessica Armstrong Taylor
01:32:44
does signing count towards the amount of words we expect them to be able to communicate with?
Fati
01:33:15
thank you I will try
Cátia Caçote
01:33:58
Sorry,could we please clarify?if both parents speak same language,should we just speak our language,should we mix English and Portuguese when we speak or should one parent speak English and the other Portuguese?thank you
Sarah Guest
01:34:59
my daughter is about to turn 1 year. Although she seems to understand words she very rarely babbles or even says words such as mama or dada, she does open her mouth as if shes going to speak but nothing actually comes out. HV has advised to just wait to see how it goes. can you offer any other advice?
Becky’s iPhone
01:35:52
what is your opinion on quizzing chn, eg where is the cow? in a book. I am reading a Montessori book which advises against it!
Laura
01:36:35
Any advice for babies with a cleft palate - soft palate, at the back

Kierrah George

She learned to sign to tell us
Jessica Armstrong Taylor
01:40:34

Joanne Lauricourt-Attang
01:41:18
Great thank you. Do you recommend he talk in Italian 100% of the time even though he's been talking in English all this time?
Miss Fawn
01:41:23
my baby is about to turn 2, she babbles a lot but I can’t recognise many of her words. I speak to her in Croatian and she used to get some English from the nursery and when I talk to friends in English. I’ve noticed she sometimes says a recognisable word but then doesn’t repeat it.
Ana
01:42:08
thank you.
Rosalind P
