From the moment we are born, we struggle to communicate our needs and understand the needs of others. In Talk Time Parent & Me classes we utilize the expertise of our Speech Language Pathologist, Occupational Therapist, Physical Therapist and a Behavioral Specialist to create a unique and educational environment for children to thrive and for parents to communicate with their kid(s) and give them a voice to communicate instead of crying!

Utilizing baby sign language, we give every child and their caregiver(s) all the tools they need for a better, healthier and smoother communication. In addition we incorporate messy art and sensory play created by our OTs to help fine/gross motor development, enhances neural pathway connections, cognitive growth and much more.  

Through sign language we teach the primary steps to effective communication as well as faster language development! After each class YOU'll walk out knowing practical ASL signs and how to communicate more effectively with your little gem! Give your child their voice and the ability to "talk" to you rather than get frustrated!
