Good communication is the gateway to learning, friendships, academic achievement and success at work

Through the eyes of a child

For the national year of communication, Hello, we have produced 4 films to help parents encourage their children's communication development.

Narrated by comedian Kathy Burke, the films are full of useful advice on how parents can encourage their child to talk and interact with them.

There are 4 films, divided into age group, for parents who have children up to the age of 3.

If you're a member of the children's workforce, you can download a guidance document on how to get the best from our films whilst working with parents. Please click here to download.

Please click on the images below to play the films.
