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."
