Children and Baby Communication Development News Round Up
As regular followers of @speechcontacts tweets on Twitter will know, I love to scout around and find interesting snippets of news to enhance my communication in-tray.

Here’s a collection of some of the most interesting bits and pieces I’ve come across over the past few weeks. I hope you enjoy them as much as I have.
SpeechContacts very own Kindle eBook
By far the biggest and best SpeechContacts news is, of course, our new publication How to Help Your Child Talk and Grow Smarter, now available on Amazon for the Kindle, iPad, iPhone, Mac or PC. Visit to find out more details.

I want to say a word or two about the front cover, which is a miracle of teamwork. My husband created it using a photo of my son and his son, my grandson, taken by my daughter using my daughter-in-law’s camera. Beat that for a family affair! Thanks to all of you for your help.

Smart Talkers Pre-School Communication Groups
There’s one more thank you from me, which goes to Libby Sisson for her help and encouragement to this poor old technophobe, in setting up the SpeechContacts Facebook page - and more.

Libby is a speech therapist and director of Small Talk SLT Ltd. She offers some great franchise opportunities for anyone interested in setting up their own Smart Talkers pre-school communication group – no need to be a speech therapist to get started.

My photo

Frances Evesham: on the run around Europe for years, with only a husband, three children and a succession of opinionated cats to keep me out of trouble. Somerset stopped me in my tracks. Now I walk in the country and breathe sea air. I will get around to cleaning the house soon.

I've been a speech therapist, a professional communication fiend and a road sweeper. I sometimes work in the criminal courts to uphold fair questioning of people with special needs.

I smell the roses, lavender and rosemary as I cook with a glass of wine in one hand and a bunch of chillies in the other. Writing historical romances and books on communication leaves enough time to enjoy bad jokes and puns and wish I’d kept on with the piano lessons.
