Want to help your toddler talk more?

If you are the parents of a baby or toddler, get the tools you need to grow their vocabulary as quickly as possible from home.

YES, I Want To Raise a Little Talker!

With results like this...

"Within almost less than 2 months, he said about 50 words. He literally went from saying nothing...to saying a new word almost everyday."
- Danyelle, mom of 21 month old
"I've lost count of all the new words he says and that's in just over 6 weeks"
- Cailen, mom of 25 month old
"Now she's not even 19 months old and we're at well over 80 [words]"
- Lisa, mom of 19 month old

...It's no wonder parents rave about my research-based approach to help their toddlers talk.

Feeling worried about your baby or toddler meeting their speech milestones?

I get it. I've been there!

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 that heart melting "mama" or "I love you" and the cute conversations that follow, but the words aren't coming as you expected…

You make sure to read to them often and talk to them all day long (or the opposite--you have no clue what to say to a baby), and your child is still not talking or only has a handful of words.

You can't figure out what they want half the time and you're both frustrated and discouraged.

Then all you get for an answer is: "Just read to them more!" or "Don't worry about it, my nephew didn't start talking until he was 3".


I'm calling BS on this narrative.

It's totally normal to wish you knew what your toddler wants and when, so you can:

  • Meet their needs with ease (and decrease frustrating communication meltdowns)
  • Know when they have a tummy ache or what they want to eat (or don't want) because they can tell you
  • Experience your toddler's sweet and silly thoughts so you can laugh together and think "kids do say the darnedest things!"
  • Hear from your pediatrician that your little one is on track so you have one less thing to worry about...

And it can feel enormously stressful when these things are not happening.

You don't need to work harder or longer.

The problem is simple...

You don't yet have the TOOLS!

But it's not your fault.

Unfortunately, parents just don't get helpful education about speech and language development.

I want to change that.

You can take your baby or toddler's speech and language to the next level at home.

Hi, I'm Melissa and this is my son, Gavin!

I'm a licensed speech-language pathologist and the founder of Raising Little Talkers.

As a mom of three little kids, I know how helpless you can feel when your child isn't meeting milestones —

I was in your same shoes when my son wasn't meeting his gross motor milestones.

He still wasn't sitting independently at 9 months old...

To say I was an anxious mess is an understatement!

I was so worried and overwhelmed, my mind went to the worst possible scenarios.

I googled way too much and freaked myself out that there might be something seriously wrong with him...

...that it could be this diagnosis or that, that he may never walk. You know how this goes...

You may have been down a similar rabbit hole with worry and anxiety about your child’s speech and language development. I felt so helpless.

When I finally learned what to do with him at home to strengthen his muscles and let me tell you–my anxious brain felt so empowered to finally have a plan of action.

It felt so good to do something to help my son and take control of the situation.

I finally had peace of mind that I was helping him to progress at home--and progress he did!

I wish I had known how to help him sooner...

You don't need to stress as long as I did.

When you're eager to hear your sweet baby or toddler talk, you don't have to sit back and wonder if there's anything more you could be doing.

You shouldn't have to wait to give your child the support they need because you can't afford to see a specialist or there is a waitlist months long for an evaluation.

What parents are saying:


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

But what we CAN control is the environment.

As a parent who is with your child day in and day out, you have a unique power to provide a language-rich environment that delivers the consistent daily input your child needs to start talking or expand their vocabulary.

Imagine knowing proven speech therapy strategies to turn your child's babbles and gestures into words and grow their vocabulary with confidence...

Well, you don't have to "imagine" any longer, because...you can.

The Raising Little Talkers course teaches you exactly how to communicate with your child like a speech therapist so that you can get them talking as quickly as possible.

This is about the time where you might be wondering how the heck you're going to fit this in to your already busy and overwhelming schedule...

But here's the thing--you don't need to add in any extra activities or set aside time to "work on speech"...

Research informs us that young children learn best in the context of their real life activities and with the people most important to them--that's YOU!

The best way to do this is to use speech therapy strategies with your child during everyday activities that you are ALREADY doing...

...like going on walks, going to the grocery store, giving baths, and changing diapers.

Every successful parent I've worked with in the past has leveraged their daily routines to grow language skills and because of the built in repetition and consistency, PROGRESS IS FASTER!

"Wait...Are you saying that just by sprinkling your strategies on top of what I'm already doing with my child, I can help them talk more AND progress will be faster too!?"

Yes. That's EXACTLY what I'm saying. 😎
