Start improving language skills TODAY!
Learning how to communicate is a powerful and necessary skill for life. Language skills allow us to express ourselves, form relationships, make our wants and needs known, read, write, learn in school, enjoy life, and much more.
Early development beginning at birth is crucial for healthy language development! Language skills build upon each other and areas of delay can cause learning, communicating, and/or behavior problems.
Additionally, speaking and listening skills are closely tied to reading and writing abilities.
Good News! Prevention & intervention through language enriched play targeted specifically for your child can GREATLY decrease language difficulties in later years.
It may seem almost impossible that you could be the one who helps your child start talking, expand vocabulary, develop early grammar skills, and build a solid foundation for language learning.
Being a parent, especially a parent of a young toddler, can be overwhelming with all the false information on the internet, high criticism from everyone, lack of sleep, and just being too busy to even think.
On top of all that, your child isn’t talking and you are freaking out!
