How to Teach a Toddler to Talk

Turn your worry into action!

I know you desperately want your child to talk.

I’ve experienced how heartbreaking it is to have a toddler in your life who can’t communicate. You want to know what they’re thinking and feeling but you can’t because of their speech delay. You want to help them but feel lost and overwhelmed not knowing the best things to do.

On top of that, speech therapy is expensive, insurance can be difficult, and waitlists can be as long as 12 months- so you feel helpless and you lay awake at night worrying about your little one not knowing how far behind they are or how to help them.

How many words should your child use?​

  • 12 Months = 2-6 words
    (other than “mama” and “dada”)
  • 15 Months =10 words
  • 18 months =50 words
  • 24 Months =200-300 words
  • 30 Months=450 words
  • 36 Months =1,000 words

I’m Kayla, a California licensed Speech-Language Pathologist with a master’s degree from San Diego State University and a specialty in working with children with Autism. You may know me as the Speech Therapist from Youtube where I post tips and tricks for parents of children with speech and language delays.

As a licensed Speech-Language Pathologist, I’ve helped hundreds of worried families learn how to help their child communicate and I want to help you too! 

After a year and a half of posting videos with tips and tricks, my wonderful fans – you parents – have been telling me that my tips are working and you love it so much you are binge watching, late into the night! (Pass the popcorn!) But but you want MORE, MORE, MORE!

So after countless requests I’m SUPER excited to share with you my online course. 

This is the next level of education way beyond the tips and tricks from my YouTube. This is a full length, intensive, professional level course where I actually SHOW you and TEACH you how I help children from start to finish- bringing a child from crying to signing to TALKING!

Class Curriculum

Lesson 1: How to Pave the Way for Speech Development

Learn what cognitive skills are important for speech development in young children. Watch me work with toddlers and parents to see how to help your child become more socially engaged. This lesson is especially important for children at-risk or diagnosed with Autism.

Lesson 2: How to Boost Understanding for Speech

Before children can use words they must first understand words. Learn what types of receptive language skills to look for in your child and see how you can strengthen these areas by watching me perform speech therapy with toddlers.

Lesson 3: Foster Imitation of Actions and Sounds

Learn how to encourage your child to copy what you do and what you say! Watch how I teach these skills in speech therapy with my clients.

Lesson 4: Teach Sign Language

If your child is struggling to use words and is highly frustrated, using sign language may be an excellent temporary solution. See how teaching sign in 3 stages has been successful with my own nephew and my clients with speech delays.

Lesson 5: Imitation of Simple Words

Now this is the really fun part! Use my 4 strategies in fun and engaging activities for a more successful learning process with your child.

Lesson 6: Independent Speech

Use my 3 therapy tools to more effectively encourage your toddler to say words on their own. At the end you’ll learn what next steps to take and in a BONUS video I’ll answer several commonly asked questions.

All of this must cost a fortune, right?

Well, it sure would if you did private therapy sessions at up to $300 dollars per hour!

My course includes the material I’d normally cover in 6 months of in-person therapy. All that time in private therapy would costs thousands, and not everyone can afford that.

That’s why I’m so excited to be able to offer this video course for only $399 (or a payment plan of 6 monthly payments of $75).

That’s right! For as low as $75 today, you can instantly access all the material and save thousands of dollars over private speech therapy!

To put the cost in perspective, this three and a half hour course is cheaper than many would charge for only 1.5 hours of private speech therapy sessions (up to $300 per hour).

Remember, this course includes SIX MONTHS worth of the education and activities I normally give to my clients organized into 6 lessons – PLUS printable docs you can use daily!

Frequently Asked Questions

When does the course start and finish?

The full course is available NOW! It is a self-paced online course – you decide when you start and when you finish.

How long do I have access to the course?

After enrolling, you have one year of access to this course.

Is this meant to replace in-person speech therapy?

For best results, use this course in addition to working in-person with a qualified Speech-Language Pathologist. This course is not meant to replace in-person speech therapy but provide education.

How long is the course?

This course is about 3.5 hours of video education that is broken up into small, achievable chunks.

What ages is this course for?

This course is appropriate for most children between the ages of 12 months and 5 years of age. Lessons 1, 2, and 3 specifically go through younger developing skills that must be mastered in order for the other important speech skills to develop.

My child is talking but not very much, is this course right for them?

This course is great for children who have a below-average vocabulary size. That means they are not using the number of words that most kids their age are using. For words to count as a vocabulary word they should be used independently (not just repeated after an adult) and regularly (words that were used in the past or just once or twice do not count). I typically don’t count “ABC’s” or numbers as words because they are not used functionally to get wants and needs met.

Is this course good for children at-risk or diagnosed with Autism?

Yes. This course covers some of the same essential techniques that are applicable for children at-risk or diagnosed with Autism. Lessons 1 and 2 are especially geared towards these types of children.

Is this course recommended for speech therapist and other professionals ?

Yes. In the course I speak directly to the parents so professionals can learn how to use “parent-friendly” language when educating them on how to help their child at-home. Many speech therapists, ABA therapists, and teachers have enrolled in my course and found it very beneficial to their practice.

Yes, YOU can teach your toddler to talk.

You can learn to help your child with my simple step-by-step process. No qualifications necessary, just follow my steps. 

And think about it … one hour of speech therapy is only 2% of your child’s waking hours and the other 98% of the time is spent with YOU the parent. 

My techniques won’t take much extra time to learn or implement since most of the techniques are designed to naturally fit into your daily routines, but by tweaking what you are already doing you can make your time more effective for language learning than ever before. 

Additionally, by implementing even just 15 minutes per day using my suggested activities you’ll connect with your child on a deeper level and can see amazing social and language results in a short matter of time.

Why wait? Start communicating with your child today!

YOU need to know what to do and your child desperately needs to communicate with you.

Choosing to “wait and see” if your child catches up on their own or waiting until a spot opens up on the long clinic waitlist means precious time wasted.

Don’t let your child needlessly continue in frustration and anxiety without a way to communicate, when you could be starting my video course now.

You can immediately start implementing impactful strategies that can help alleviate stress and frustration for you and your child while opening up the pathway for communication and connection.
