5 Tips For Encouraging Language

Imagine feeling confident about the role you play in your child's language development.

If you're anything like me, you want your child to live their best life and that starts by reaching all their milestones on time as expected. I speak from experience when I say it can feel enormously stressful when that's not happening. While my children both spoke early and often, my son wasn’t meeting his gross motor milestones on time. Once we got support, I learned super simple techniques that helped him progress quickly and I remember wishing I had known this stuff all along. I hear this same story time and time again from the parents of my late-talking clients at my speech therapy practice and from my mom friends who wanted to know how my little ones were so talkative.

What I've come to realize is that parents are just not given quality information about how to encourage speech and language development early on. It seems the only advise being given is to “just talk to your baby all day” or “just narrate everything you’re doing all the time”. While this is not bad advice, it’s way too general and not a complete picture. Usually the first language milestone everyone thinks about is their child’s first word, but there is so much that needs to be in place before those first words can come.
 

The purpose of this course is to teach you the speech and language milestones that come before those first words and easy, yet powerful, tips you can use to nurture these skills. By fostering these skills, your child will have everything they need in place to start talking. Of course there are parts of our child’s development that are out of our control, but why not build a solid foundation right from the beginning? I’m a firm believer that every single parent should feel confident teaching their child to talk.
