Imagine knowing exactly what to do to help your child meet their speech and language milestones.
If you're anything like me, you couldn't wait to hear your baby’s sweet voice before they were even born. Now you're beyond excited for the conversations you'll have with your little one, but the words aren't coming as you expected. 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?”
It's totally normal to want your child to meet their milestones on time (or even a little early)! I speak from experience when I say it can feel enormously stressful when that's not happening. Of course there are parts of our child's development that are out of our control, but as a parent who is with your child the most and 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 will change how you communicate with your child so that every interaction is growing their language skills.
