Resources for the mob
Early Words Aboriginal Resources were developed in partnership with our Western Sydney Aboriginal community. They cover nine stages from pregnancy to 5 years. Families can look at easy activities that will help bub get ready to read write and yarn well from birth to 5 years.
The resources support the mob to use the Top 5 Tips for the First 5 Years.
Everyone is welcome to download the resources.
The Tip Sheets are divided into eight stages from pregnancy to 5 years.
Each Tip Sheet lets you know what bub can do at each stage and gives you lots of ideas to help bub learn. The hard copy Tip Sheets are printed on card and have a magnet on the back so you can stick them on your fridge.

Early Words Videos

Also known as Glue Ear, Ear Disease or Middle Ear Infection, it is a build up of fluid behind the ear drum that can lead to permanent hearing loss. Watch Early Words' video 'The Hidden Hearing Problem' to find out:
