  • My toddler has special needs, will this course help me?

    I do not specifically address special needs in this class because each child’s speech and language needs are so individual. That said, if you want to learn songs & rhymes to sing with your child for fun and connection, it's a great option!

  • My child is bilingual, is this course a good option for me?

    Absolutely! The strategies I teach in this course are great no matter how many, and no matter which languages your family speaks. Learn more about bilingualism and speech development here.

  • I'm not concerned about my child's talking, but I would love to learn more songs & rhymes. Is this a good course for me?

    Yes! Many families take the course simply because they want to learn new, fun songs and rhymes to sing with their children that help prepare kids to learn to read down the road.

  • My toddler needs help with speaking more clearly, will this course teach me how to help them?

    I do not talk about specific speech sounds in this course. I talk about common sound mistakes that toddler's make that are a part of typical development. I do not talk about speech sounds, because it's so individual to each child.

  • How long will it take me to complete the course?

    The course is about 1.5 hours in total, but all of the lessons are broken up into short videos and you can learn at your own pace. Because there are so many fun new songs, a lot of students say they return to learn new songs again & again.
