As a therapist, I know the importance of helping your baby learn to talk.

You want what’s best for your child, both today and long-term. You want to understand your child’s thoughts and feelings, but can’t because of delayed language development. You wish to help your child, but find yourself feeling lost and overwhelmed—unsure of what steps to take.

Add to that the cost of speech therapy, complex insurance policies, 12+ month waitlists, and the feeling of uncertainty—and it’s clear you may find yourself feeling helpless and unable to sleep at night, worrying about your toddler and unsure how delayed their development is, or how to help them.

That’s why I created How to Teach a Toddler to Talk. I’ve experienced the heartbreak of having a child in the family struggle to communicate, which is why I’m focused on creating more accessible speech therapy programs for kids.

On top, speech therapy is expensive, insurance policies can be complicated, and waitlists are often as long as 12 months. You may find yourself feeling helpless and unable to sleep at night, worrying about your toddler and unsure how delayed their development is, or how to help them.

The full course is available INSTANTLY! It's a self-paced online course - you decide when to start and finish.

You have access to this course for one year from the date of enrollment. In my experience, this is enough time for the majority of students. Rest assured, if you need more time, send me an email and I'll be happy to extend the service at no additional cost.

For optimum results, use this course while working in-person with a qualified Speech-Language Pathologist. This course is designed to accompany in-person speech and language therapy by providing general education and resources.

The course contains 3.5 hours of video content which is broken up into small, achievable modules.

The course is best suited for children between the ages of 12 months and five years. Lessons 1, 2, and 3 specifically address skills which are fundamental to the development of speech and language.

 

YES! This course is well-suited for children whose vocabulary size is below-average. For words to count as vocabulary, they should be used independently and not imitated from an adult. Vocabulary is used regularly; so, words used in the past, or once or twice do not count. I usually don't count "ABC's" or numbers as words, because they are not functional terms to express a child's needs and wants.

Cancellations and refunds are not offered. Please reach out to Kayla at kayla@walkietalkiespeechtherapy.com if you have a question about the course.

YES! This course covers essential techniques which apply to children at-risk of autism, or diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder. Lessons 1 and 2 are tailored for children experiencing these developmental challenges.

Yes. Throughout the course I speak directly with parents so professionals can learn how to use "parent-friendly" language during educational sessions. Many speech therapists, ABA therapists, and teachers have enrolled in my course and found it beneficial in helping parents teach children within their homes.
