This text considers how pedagogy can be used to develop and harness the voice of the child in the early years. It presents theoretical approaches which underpin a child’s communication experiences in the home, the early years setting and in the local community. Topics considered include the development of an effective communication environment, the importance of toys and resources, and developments in digital communication and their impact on the child. With summaries, case studies and provocations.
