High Quality Toys & Video Tutorials To Help Your Child

Welcome to Play Talk & Grow!

Play Talk & Grow curates high quality, premium toys to engage your child and help them build speech and language skills.  The toys meet all 5 criteria for the perfect toy:  multiple pieces, perform actions, grow the imagination, build vocabulary/concepts, and be simple. Toys will not teach your child how to talk.  They are the TOOLS we use to get them talking.  

If you are concerned about your child’s speech, waiting to receive services, or wanting to do more at home, Play Talk & Grow can help you start TODAY.  Call a Speech Therapist, schedule the evaluation, and then get started.  Playing with a child that doesn’t respond is really hard!  Many families struggle with how to interact with someone who doesn’t talk or show interest.  There are so many things you can do to build their engagement and thus teach language.  Learn how to play with your child and help them talk.

Learn from video tutorials that will give you the power and skills to help your child talk at home.

Toys & Videos to Help Your Child

Rather than testing your child on the alphabet or numbers, focus on playing with them.  Play with blocks, puzzles, cars, trains, stacking towers, balls, music, games, and play foods.  Read books.  Build play into daily routines, like, bath time, dinner time, or grocery shopping. Get your child’s attention by using your voice and facial expressions.

Our videos are full of techniques that you can implement during play and throughout your day to encourage speech.  Start by creating routines and building in language opportunities.  Comment and describe your actions and thoughts.  Narrate your day for your child to hear.  Parents are a child’s first teacher and children learn best in a natural environment.  

Through play it may only take 10-20 repetitions to develop a new skill.
