Welcome to Language and Play Dates
HI! I’m Caitlin.
A wife, mother, Speech Language Pathologist, and play date enthusiast.
Like all other parents I waited anxiously for that first smile, first laugh, and first word. During those months, I eagerly sought out other moms to do this journey with. The moms I journey with often have different viewpoints on how raising a child should look (because being the same is boring right?!) but want the same thing for our children- happiness and growth. Moms need to have a safe space to ask any and all questions from what’s your favorite portable high chair to what’s this rash? to should I be worried my child’s not ____?.
It was in this space that I realized my expert training in speech language pathology gave me a different viewpoint and approach to play and language. I have spent the past 10 years working to improve communication and play skills for children at home and in the the classroom. And I can’t help but think- why not help parents learn the strategies they can use from infancy BEFORE they have to spend hundreds of dollars on therapy?
So here I am- hoping to be a support to other mammas out there just trying to make it. I want to show you little changes in everyday routines that will help you raise a talking, social child.
