Learn2Communicate was created by Karen Trengove (Director/Speech Pathologist) in 2012.

The mission of Learn2Communicate is to ensure that all children receive the support they need to become effective communicators.  The vision of Learn2Communicate is that we live in a world where every child is given the opportunity to develop effective communication skills, and a world where no child who struggles to communicate is missed out or left behind. This requires a positive relationship to be formed between Educators, Parents and Speech Pathologists.

Educators are often the first port of call for a Parent with concerns regarding a child’s speech and language development. Educators must be provided with knowledge and skills regarding speech and language development if they are to provide accurate answers to parent’s questions and support the development of all children and students in their care.  Parents must also have easy access to accurate information about child speech, language and communication skills if they are to lovingly nurture these skills in their own children; particularly those children with communication disorders.



Educators are uniquely positioned to identify any children at risk of communication disorders and to nurture the communication skill development of young children. The close bonds and trust so often formed between Educators and families means that Educators are frequently the first port of call for parents who have concerns regarding their child’s development.

The Learn2Communicate range of books, resources and workshops has been designed following extensive consultations, surveys and interviews with Australian Early Childhood Educators. Each product has been carefully developed by Karen Trengove to inspire and provide Early Childhood Educators and Parents with what they want: practical, easy to use tools that will nurture the speech and language development of all children.

The board games and card sets have been developed to support the development of early reading and spelling skills within a systematic, synthetic phonics framework.  These games work perfectly well alongside existing school programmes who follow an evidence based phonics approach to early literacy education.

Learn2Communicate resources and games have proved popular in a range of settings as well as homes for those parents who wish to provide their children with additional support.
