    Babies start to communicate as soon as they are born. All the activities that parents do with their babies make a contribution to the development of babies’ speech, language and communication abilities. For many adults who care for children, it is a real challenge to find out how to encourage children´s development of these areas. How to know if it is at an expected level or whether something should be done? Is your baby at risk for a communication delay? Who can help and when? In the next pages one could find a lot of useful advice for parents and professionals (speech language therapists, preschool teachers, doctors …) who are interested in language, speech and communication development of children up to the age of three. Describing how the communication ability usually develops, presenting some warning signs for children at risk, summarizing standardized tests to prove communication delay and interpreting the most common and specific diagnoses from this area of development are all parts of the paper. The thesis ends with a comprehensive review of early intervention techniques. There are many ways of how to help your child, who can help and when to start with it. The most successful appear to be the approaches that are focused on the child and family. It is good to start with these approaches as soon as possible. As it is suggested the sooner you start, the better the outcome is, and the more child- and family-centered the therapy is, the easier it is transferred into babies’ everyday life. All these could be achieved by appropriate games a child plays with an adult. Many examples sorted by the age and type of communication promotion are written at the end and are aimed at guiding everyone who wants to help a child to develop into a good communicator.
