Early Communication and Language monitoring tool 

This tool outlines key milestones in speech, language and communication development to support identification of children’s needs in the Early Years Foundation Stage.

The purpose of this tool is to help assess a child’s level of development in order to make informed decisions about what the child needs to learn and be able to do next. The tool can help practitioners to notice whether a child is at risk of falling behind in their development and supports early identification of the need for referral for specialist support.
