"I was referred to Strong Start as I wanted some guidance on encouraging my little boy to talk more. Via weekly calls I was given tips and tricks, play ideas and signposting to local services. On the first day, my son put 2 words together for the first time, because I changed how I phrased my questions. Within 4 weeks, he has started counting to 5. The service was exactly the support I needed to trigger an avalanche of words from my son! Thank you so much"
