2 Rhymes by 2

The Speech and Language Therapy Department in the South Eastern Health and Social Care Trust received funding from the PHA in February 2013 to design a universal health promotion campaign to raise awareness of the importance of early language and communication development from birth-2 years.


An evidence based programme has been developed with a series of key messages e.g. ‘Sing a Rhyme any time. Start your child learning for a lifetime’. ‘Play your part right from the start’. 


Posters and leaflets highlighting the messages along with a Facebook page have been used to engage with parents/carers.

The Programme was launched in November 2013 in Down Sure Start in Downpatrick.
