Descriptions:

Talking with Tots will take parents through the developmental phases of their baby's cognitive and language learning capability from birth to three years. Parents will learn about the emerging cognitive and language skills at each stage, standard milestones to be expected at each, and how to foster language development at each stage. Red flags will be identified that might signify the need for intervention. The course will demonstrate baby sign language as a method to help the very youngest children develop language capability and to be able to express themselves. Parents will learn techniques, games, and tricks for helping to stimulate language development at each stage in developmentally appropriate ways.

Tots at the Table will take parents through the stages of their child's feeding development over the first two years of their life. Parents will learn about gross motor, fine motor, and oral-motor capability as it relates to feeding and swallowing. Parents will learn about how their child’s speech and language development is related to feeding skills. They will learn about when to introduce solid foods to their babies, and how to subsequently add different foods to their diets, safely and effectively. They will learn about what types of food, textures and consistencies are appropriate at what stage, along with tips on how to encourage healthy and nutritious feeding habits in their children.
