    Results From Parents Just Like You

    It's totally normal to want your child to meet their milestones on time (or even a little early) and it can feel enormously stressful when that's not happening.

    You make sure to read to them often and talk to them all day long, but maybe you find yourself wondering: “Is there anything else I could be doing?”

    Of course, there are parts of our child's development that are out of our control…

    But as a parent who knows your child the best, you have a unique power to give your child the consistent daily input they need to start talking or expand their vocabulary.

    The Raising Little Talkers course teaches you exactly how to communicate with your child like a speech therapist so that every interaction is growing their language skills.
    • Your child is not talking as much as their peers or not meeting expected speech and language milestones.
    • ​You want to grow your child's speech and language skills while waiting for an evaluation or therapy to start.
    • ​You want to encourage your baby's first words, new vocabulary, or word combinations with effective strategies used by speech-language pathologists.
    • ​You want to feel confident that you're doing all that you can to help your child talk and prevent delays in language development.

    Through one-on-one clinical sessions, and now my online course, I've helped thousands of families connect and communicate with their children by turning babbles and gestures in to those precious first words, expanding their vocabulary, encouraging word combinations and beyond.
