I’m so excited to announce that my online course Talk, Sing, and Read with Your Baby is now available!
You can sign up today and have immediate access to the course.
You can read all about the course here, but I want to provide you with some additional information to help you decide if this course is right for you.
How long is the course?
I know you don’t have a lot of extra time on your hands as a busy parent. My goal was to keep it a reasonable length, but PACKED with valuable, practical information on this topic that I feel is most important for you to know. It’s just over 60 minutes if you watch it from start to finish. The lessons are broken down into shorter videos, so you can easily stop at any time and return to where you left off. I know the moms in the test group mentioned watching the song videos over a few times until they got them down.
How is the course content delivered?
Video lessons. Some of the lessons are me talking to directly to the camera, others you will hear my voice while you watch written information, and the songs & rhymes are all demonstrated for you. Many of them I do with my baby.
There is also a section of written resources for you. There is a helpful list of “baby play ideas” for those days you find yourself saying, “what am I going to do with this baby all day?!”. There is also a handout with all of the song lyrics and a tip sheet for bilingual families.
My child was born with special needs. Does the course cover that?
I do not talk about specific special needs in this course, but I still think you will find it valuable. The strategies, songs, and general information are enriching for children of all abilities. The course will be great for helping you to create a language-rich home environment and bond with your baby.
Why is the course for babies and not children who are already talking?
A child must develop many communication skills before they learn to speak, and this course will teach you all about the steps your child will take before they say their first words. There is also a bonus section for babies who are ready to start talking (close to 12 months of age). In this bonus section, I’ll talk you through how I teach my clients to start saying words step-by-step. This is for educational purposes and not meant to be a substitute for individual therapy with a speech-language pathologist if you have concerns about your child’s development, but it can help jump-start you in the right direction.
Does the course teach baby sign language?
No. I do demonstrate some American Sign Language in a few of the songs I teach, but it is too big of a topic to cover within the scope of this course.
How long will I have access to the course for?
As long I as I continue to sell the course, it will be available to you. It’s very easy to sign in and out. Return to it as often as you’d like. You will also receive all of the updated material if I make any changes to the course.
I have a two-year-old, but I love the songs and rhymes you teach. Is this class appropriate?
The songs and rhymes in the course are great for toddlers as well. It’s up to you whether you would like to take the course for this information. I think you would find it helpful as a parent of a toddler, but keep in mind I don’t talk about how to help your child speak in sentences or other topics toddler parents are usually most interested in.
What are your qualifications to teach this course?
I am a pediatric speech-language pathologist and have been practicing with infants, toddlers, and preschoolers for the past 12 years in public and private practice in the US and Canada. I have worked with children of all abilities and truly love it! If you’re interested, you can read more about my certifications, additional training, and qualifications on the about page. I am also a mother of two girls (3 and 10 months) and draw from my experience as a mom to make the information as practical as I can so you can easily incorporate it into your life.
