How to Teach a Toddler to Talk

Advanced Online Course

Worried about your child?

Although your child is talking, you may have noticed that they are not talking as much as other children their age and aren’t combining words to create meaningful phrases. You may find yourself worrying that your child is stuck or has hit a plateau.

Did you know? Most toddlers start using two and three words phrases between 21 and 24 months of age? If your child is not meeting these average numbers and not creating phrases yet – don’t waste time!

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

Don't wait — start making progress now!

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 more fully with you when you could start my advanced 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.

All of this for the one-time price of $99! This 8 lesson course is cheaper than one private speech therapy session (which can cost up to $300 an hour)! To give you the very best value possible, I’ve included SIX MONTHS worth of education and activities organized into about 1.5 hours of video education.

Yes. This course covers some of the same essential techniques for children at-risk or diagnosed with Autism. 

This course is appropriate for most children between the ages of 21 months and five years of age. 

 

This course is excellent 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 a word to count as a vocabulary word, it should be used independently (not just repeated after an adult) and regularly (words used in the past or only once or twice do not count). I typically don't count ABC or numbers as words because they are not used to get wants and needs met.
