You spend more time with your child than a speech therapist could!
That's why Big Little Talkers does things differently.
We show YOU how to use everyday moments to help your toddler talk.
90% of brain development happens during the first three years!
This means that the sooner your child gets the support they need, the sooner they can catch up!
But with barriers to therapy like waitlists, cost, and dismissive professionals, how can ensure your child is getting the right support?
Get this: When parents were trained in speech therapy strategies to help their toddlers talk, the children responded as well, sometimes even better than when speech therapists delivered the therapy!
The key to helping your toddler say more isn't to "talk all day" or read more
The magic is in the everyday moments like taking a walk or giving a bath. It's knowing how to maximize these moments to help foster your child's speech and language skills.
It's the small moments that make a big impact!
When your child can't tell you what they want, it's frustrating! More words means less frustration, tantrums, and tears
Early speech and language skills are related to school readiness, social skills, reading and writing, and success in school later on.
Spend less time worrying and comparing and more time having fun with your toddler
"Brooke showed us methods we could use to take a more targeted approach, such as prioritizing words that would empower him to express himself while reducing frustration."

Watch your toddler's vocabulary explode as you implement speech therapy strategies.
As a parent of a toddler myself, I know what it's like to worry about your child meeting milestones.
In my Private Practice specializing in toddlers, I hear over and over from families who are told to "wait and see" by people who don't truly understand speech development.
So kudos to you! Listening to your gut isn't always easy! Being an advocate for your child also means people may tell you you're being overly concerned or tell you they'll "grow out of it" —even though we know from research that earlier is better and that 20-30% of late-talking toddlers don't grow out of it.
That’s exactly why I created Big Little Talkers

"I know you're not supposed to compare...
but I would hear other kids his age talking in phrases and I would I get so worried! I would spiral wondering if he was always going to be behind. He says things now I never would have imagined. Thank you!"
