Changing Time is Chatting Time Series

Changing Time is Chatting Time (CTCT) and Anytime is Chatting Time (ATCT) form a suite of resources developed by the Sure Start Speech and Language Therapy (SLT) Team in Belfast Health & Social Care Trust (BHSCT).

Each resource consists of a parent information session (A3 ‘lift and go’ folder with pictures on one side and the script for the facilitator on the other) , 2 videos, parent leaflet with songs and a QR code card for accessing the videos.

Changing Time is Chatting Time is designed for parents of babies and Anytime is Chatting Time is designed for parents of toddlers from around 12 months of age.

Both CTCT and ATCT follow the same format: information about how a baby’s brain develops and the simple message that when you smile, talk, laugh, sing and share stories with your child, you are helping to build their brain. The information is based on the latest research about the importance of serve and return interactions for the developing brain and aligns with the Solihull Approach and the NI Infant Mental Health Framework. It is packaged in a simple, accessible way to support behaviour change.  All 4 videos are on YouTube and can be accessed using the bit.ly links below:’
