There are few greater joys than watching your child grow before your very eyes. 

One of the key developments in any parent-child relationship is growth in speech and language skills. But sometimes communication and language learning can be a struggle. When these communication challenges occur for the child you love and adore, it’s heartbreaking and can lead to tension and stress. 

Teaching Your Toddler To Talk While Maintaining Your Peace empowers parents and caregivers to jump from wondering what to do to help their child to talk to using playful, practical speech therapy strategies in everyday routines. These strategies and activities will help you and your child make real progress, and transition feelings of overwhelm and confusion to confidence and achievement.
