Debbie Brace

Debbie Brace created Baby Talk and Play in 2010 and is commissioned as early language and behaviour consultant to work with families, schools and early years settings in the Hounslow borough. Historically a qualified teacher with a degree in Drama, Debbie couples her more recent training in infant mental health with her colleague’s expertise as a speech and language therapist. Together they lead the ‘Let’s Talk Together’ programme; promoting early language development within a psychoanalytic and attachment informed approach. With an MA specialising in the emotional development of infants from the World renowned Tavistock, she is a recent joint winner of the The Louise Emanuel Essay Prize (2019), an annual award presented for an outstanding piece of writing in the area of Infant Mental Health. This writing informed her recently published paper on the subject of ‘Settling In’ Brace (2021): ‘Settling In’: Exploring the complexities of observing and responding to young children’s communications of distress as they start day care, Infant Observation.
