Course Description

Help your children become proficient speakers and thinkers. This course provides ways to stimulate your child's continued speech, brain, and language development in enjoyable, age-appropriate, and natural ways.

Intended Outcomes for the course

  • Use play and instinct to communicate soundlessly with a newborn, to help him fill his language-building toolbox, and to create a stimulating environment for language development.
  • Help young children to progress to past tense, contractions, pronouns, and conjunctions. 
  • Understand which speech games will help you make the connection from speech to reading.
