Aims: - To investigate first time mums' knowledge about normal language development and speech acquisition. - To find out if first time mums feel that they require more information on these areas and if so, when and in what format. Design: Questionnaires, distributed via emails, were used to gather quantitative and qualitative data. Results: Mothers know more about language milestones than speech acquisition. The age of the mother or the age of the child appears to have had no impact of their knowledge in these areas. 75% of mothers would like further information regarding ages of language milestones and speech acquisition targets. Conclusion: Mothers require further information regarding the ages of normal speech acquisition and language development. This information needs to be given at an appropriate time in order to help them monitor their child's speech and language development before they go to school.
