Jump Start (Speech & Language Development)

FREE 60 minute talk designed for parents whose children are not yet talking or just beginning to use words or phrases (6 months to 3 years of age).

Topics to be discussed include:

  • Ways to stimulate and expand children's early speech and language skills.
  • Ways to elicit early vocalizations, words and phrases.
  • Examples of how feeding and drinking abilities impact speech production.
Taught by Nancy Hastings, MA, CCC, SLP


  • "Nancy was bubbly and extremely informative.  And I love that she had a hand out, well organized."
  • "Nancy was very engaging and I took home a lot of tips."
  • "I found the information very helpful, on topic and appropriate.  I already used some techniques on my son today!  Nancy was knowledgeable, helpful, clear, concise, and gave out a take-away "cheat sheet" which was great!!!!"
  • "I was very happy with the talk.  Nancy was passionate about the subject, and clearly very knowledgeable.  She made it fun!
  • "Nancy was exceptional, knowledgeable, relative and very personable.  My husband and I enjoyed the class and came home with many realistic approaches to helping our son use words instead of motions to communicate.  I would recommend the class to not only parents, but grandparents and caregivers of toddlers."
