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.
Of course there are parts of our child's development that are out of our control...
But as a parent who is with them the most and knows them the best, you have a unique power to give them the consistent daily input your child needs 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.

How long do I have access to the course for?
Forever! You can access the course again and again as needed. You may not, however, share the course with other households--this may result in losing access.
What ages is this for?
More important than age is the child's current communiation abilities. The course is designed for parents of babies and toddlers who are not yet using words or who are using some words, but are behind and you want to grow their vocabulary and help them combine words. If your child has a large vocabulary, likely their language is too advanced for this course. The course is also great for proactive parents who are hoping to prevent delays in the future.
Can I take the course if my child is already meeting milestones?
YES! The course is not just for children who are behind. The course will benefit proactive parents too. I used the strategies with both of my children who met and exceeded speech and language milestones for their age.
How many words should my child be saying?
12 months = 1 - 5 words
What if we don't speak English at home?
The strategies I teach in my course are not language-specific. What you learn can be applied in any language you speak at home.
Is there closed captioning available?
Yes! In English and Spanish.
