EARLY LANGUAGE YEARS 

Hannah is also the founder of Early Language Years (ELY). Recognising the impact of successful early language skills on academic and long term success, Hannah set up ELY to empower parents with knowledge and activity ideas to develop their little one's speech and language skills. Hannah is the author of ELY's Guide to Speech and Language Development, which provides parents with insights and evidenced-based approaches to develop their child's play and language skills from birth to school-going age. 

Are you concerned your little one is a "late-talker?"

Book 'Tele-with-ELY' for 1;1 parent coaching to advance your little one through their linguistic milestones, or if your child is under 5 years, use the 'Tele-with-ELY' to book a tele-consultation. 

Check out our Instagram @elyactivities for #talkingtips and for fun language stimulating activities!

Hannah is available for tele-consultations, tele-therapy sessions or 1;1 parent coaching sessions (providing parents with techniques and tips to facilitate their little one's language development),  every weekday afternoon.
