At What Age Should You Worry About A Child Not Talking?

In this episode I chat with Libby Hill who appeared on Channel 4’s ‘Born Naughty?’ in Series 1 & is a Consultant Speech and Language Therapist with Small Talk Speech and Language Therapy, an independent practice, who work throughout Staffordshire and surrounding areas.

I was invited on to BBC Radio London to talk about #PLAYLIKEMUM as mums are left outraged by a new toy pram collection that encourages young girls to ‘Play Like Mum’

The ‘Play Like Mum’ range by Silver Cross is set to be launched later this month

The collection has already been slammed for reinforcing gender stereotypes.
