Parents, are you frustrated trying to teach your toddler to talk? Are other children his age asking for what they want and need while he can only cry?

Find help for toddlers with speech delay…

Maybe the experts tell you everything’s fine. But you can’t get past that nagging feeling that things should be getting better. And they just aren’t.

As a parent, there’s nothing more frustrating than watching your precious baby struggle to learn to communicate. While friends’ and relatives’ toddlers are all saying “Mama” and “ball” and even forming simple sentences, your child can only cry in frustration, locked away from the world of words that should to be opening up for her.

You can’t help feeling embarrassed, or jealous, or even angry. Why YOUR child? Why does it have to be so hard?

You would give anything for your baby to be able to ask for help when he needs it, or tell you he loves you when he snuggles close.

Everyone tells you, “Oh, she’ll talk when she’s ready.”

Even the pediatrician insists there’s nothing seriously wrong. But you KNOW your child. You know she WANTS to communicate. You see her trying. You know she’s ready now.

But no matter how hard you try to help her, the words don’t come.

Maybe your child is seeing a speech therapist. But it’s hard when the techniques the therapist tells you to use at home are too hard and too complicated for you, let alone your toddler!

I want to tell you right now, the problem is not you.

And it’s not your child.

The problem is simply that you don’t have the simple, easy to understand tools you need to help your child communicate.

Until now.

Right now, TODAY, there IS something you can do. Without letting another painful, frustrating, heartbreaking day go by.


It’s called Teach Me To Talk, and take it from a mother who’s been there! And it’s just amazing.

The Teach Me To Talk DVD is packed with strategies that will unlock that beautiful voice your child has locked away inside. And best of all, these strategies are PROVEN to be simple to learn, easy to apply, and best of all, successful in teaching young children to talk.

Interested in seeing the Teach Me To Talk techniques in action? Here’s a quick preview of the Six Essential Strategies you’ll learn — and a glimpse of the first technique you’ll see:

What makes Teach Me To Talk different?

It was developed by Laura Mize, a pediatric speech-language pathologist who has literally spent thousands of hours and 20 years on the floor, helping toddlers just like yours and mine learn to communicate.

Laura has read stacks and stacks of research on the subject of delayed speech in children. She’s attended more professional courses than you can count. She’s taken the best of the best from all the ‘experts’ in language development.

And she’s condensed all those years of learning and experience and trial and error into a single DVD, with the six most simple, most practical, MOST EFFECTIVE strategies to get your child talking. And best of all, you can start using them the minute you start watching the DVD.

How wonderful would it feel to hear your child say “Mama?”

You’ve been waiting for that moment since he was born and you first held him in your arms. But as the months have dragged by, you may have started to lose hope that you will ever communicate with your baby, to hear what he wants, what he needs, what he feels.

And even if your toddler can say a few words, is it taking longer for her to communicate than other children her age? Are you constantly trying to interpret what you think she might be saying, or asking for?

Maybe both of you are ending up in tears.

“When I watched the DVD, I felt like I was reliving my son’s life for the past 1 1/2 years now. It was a little sad in some ways, but on the other hand if I concentrate on where he is now and how far he’s come, it’s positive!..” Holly, a mother from New Hampshire.

The Secret is Simple- Change Your Approach!

Of course, you’ve been trying to teach your child to talk. It’s what parents do. But if what you’re doing hasn’t been working, the solution is simple.

Change your approach.

If you’re like me, you’re probably wondering what that can possibly mean when you’ve tried EVERYTHING. The problem is, you’ve probably tried without really knowing what to do, or how to do it.

This DVD will change everything. Because a lot of the time, it’s not what you do, but HOW you do it. Teach Me To Talk will lay out step by step, in easy-to-follow terms, exactly what you can and should be doing to help your baby learn to talk.

If your child has a language delay, no doubt you’ve heard it all. There’s always the well-meaning friend who tells you, “Boys talk later than girls.” Or the mother-in-law who tells you to “Wait and see” (while you worry what she’s saying about your parenting skills behind your back).

The fact is, the most critical time for language development in a child is from birth through age three. So if you feel in your heart that something’s not right, you’re probably on to something. You know your child.

Most parents of children with language delays regret that they waited to do something. The good news is, YOU DON’T HAVE TO WAIT ANY LONGER.

Teach Me To Talk will show you a better, easier way to do things. Things you can do RIGHT NOW, at home, that will help your child learn to talk. It’s all about learning a new and better way of working with your child.

After all, as a parent, you are the most important teacher your child will ever have.

Secrets Your Speech Therapist Hasn’t Told You (or might not even know!!!!)

Speech therapy is a specialized skill, that’s why speech therapists charge hundreds — even thousands — of dollars for their services. But the very same techniques they use can be SIMPLIFIED so that you can use them at home.

Teach Me To Talk will teach YOU how to use the very best, most effective techniques speech therapists charge hundreds of dollars for. Watch and learn as these techniques are explained in plain language so that you can use them at home. Then, see each technique in action.

And you won’t just see how it works with one child, but with 20 different toddlers, all with different personalities and challenges. You’ll be amazed and inspired by their progress as each and every one of them learns to talk, just like your child can with the Teach Me To Talk DVD.

If your child is a late talker, you’ve probably read dozens of parenting books and looking for advice on the internet. But when you apply it to YOUR child, it doesn’t always make sense.

Do you try to do what the “experts” say, but find it just doesn’t work with your child?

The secret isn’t just knowing WHAT to do, but WHY you need to do it, and better yet, seeing exactly HOW to do it. Teach Me To Talk unlocks those secrets.

View It — Then Do It!

You don’t have to read another book. You don’t have to make time for a class. All you need is a TV and a DVD player or your computer, and you can watch and learn at your own pace, in your own time, in your own home.

And your child can be right there with you while you learn!

Teach Me To Talk takes the camera INSIDE therapy sessions with children just like yours. Whatever stage your child is at if you’re just wondering if there’s a problem, if you’ve already seen a professional or if your child is currently in speech therapy, you’ll see all kinds of children in all kinds of situations.

So you’ll discover the very best techniques to use with YOUR child.

All of this for only $39.99???

It can be expensive teaching your child to communicate.

Conferences that teach parents and therapists cost hundreds of dollars and take up hours and hours of time.

But the Teach Me To Talk DVD has all the information you need for only $39.99. That’s less than 1/3 the cost of a typical one-day training conference.

And the Teach Me To Talk DVD is packed full of ideas and tips you can use all day, every day as your child learns to communicate. Plus, it’s yours to keep and watch over and over again until you master the techniques.

“I just finished your DVD. It was great! I really got into it and actually found myself taking notes! As a PSC (early intervention service coordinator) it was helpful to see the speech therapy in motion so I can answer some questions from parents. As an OT is was refreshing to see some OT techniques embedded into the speech therapy activities.” Cindy, Louisville, KY

Thank you so much for allowing me to preview your DVD! I will put these techniques into practice myself on Monday morning with my clients! They’re not going to recognize me anymore!

  1. Robyn, a mother from Wyoming

    “Thank you so much for this DVD! Our 3 and a half-year-old son has apraxia and only has 10-12 clear words. When I first started watching this DVD, I wondered if I could ever be that animated. About 5 minutes into the DVD, my son walked into the room and was instantly fascinated. He sat with me and watched the rest with me! His reaction was truly amazing, and our speech therapy will never be the same again! The most amazing thing to me, though, was how my son interacted with you! During the 90 minute video, he got two new words: choo choo and boom. He also tried to say pull and barn and learned the sign for fish. Twice he signed ‘give me’ and then touched a toy you were playing with, and every time you tried to get a child to say a word he knows, he would say it with you.” Robyn, a mother from Wyoming

  2. Kate, Developmental Interventionist, Kentucky

    “I know for a fact that Laura’s approach really does work because I’ve been using it for years myself! Don’t be afraid to copy exactly what she says, how and when she says it! It is not hard and can become second nature to you, just as it has to me. By implementing her approach, you will set the stage for both you and your child to be successful!”  Kate, Developmental Interventionist, Kentucky

  3. Helen

    “Just wanted to let you know how thrilled I am with your video. I just received it five days ago and I’ve watched it every morning to gear up for working with my daughter each day and I have to tell you what a difference it has made! My daughter has been in therapy for a year and a half (she’s 31 months) and she would often run from me during our ‘play’ sessions. Finally, after only five days, she is starting to think that her mommy is fun during playtime! Thank you for giving me a way to really connect with my daughter on a new level. This video is priceless.” Helen

  4. Holly, a mother from New Hampshire

    “I do think the video will be very helpful for parents with late talkers. The ideas are great, and you really do show them how to do the things you are talking about which is very important!..” Holly, a mother from New Hampshire

  5. Stephanie, Mother from Kentucky

    “Even when weekly therapy reports indicated a great deal of progress, we weren’t always seeing that progress at home. The Teach Me To Talk DVD has dramatically changed the number of words we hear. Seeing the techniques you use, and seeing how easy they are to incorporate in to our daily routines has been a blessing. I can get so many words and even phrases out of my both my toddlers by incorporating playfulness in to our daily activities. As a working mom, I’ve always felt as if I’m not as active in my children’s therapy as I should be. You DVD is finally helping me make that connection. Thank you so much for such a fantastic tool!” Stephanie, Mother from Kentucky

  6. Ranjana, pediatrician and mom from Ohio

    “The DVD brought tears to my eyes (not your goal I’m sure, but there you go!). Each strategy you used – reminded me of my child. It is amazing how simple techniques (most of which we take for granted) can help a non-verbal child become verbal. Another thing I learned from my experience with being a mom, a pediatrician, having your guidance and the DVD – is that language, talking, speech, and articulation involve SO many other aspects of development.” Ranjana, pediatrician and mom from Ohio

  7. Kristyn, a mother from New Hampshire

    “The DVD was quite different from what I expected – in a good way. I hardly expected to see so much one-on-one with the kids, and it was great!” Kristyn, a mother from New Hampshire

  8. Julie, a mother from Illinois

    “The DVD is great! I wish I had had this when we first started down the path with Gabe who has been diagnosed with apraxia.” Julie, a mother from Illinois

  9. Sarah, mother, and author of the website www.wakingsophie.com

    “I recently watched a DVD that has been advertised on this site called Teach Me to Talk, by Laura Mize, Pediatric Speech-Language Pathologist. The DVD was 90 minutes long and taught six strategies to teach your child to talk.

    It is aimed at toddlers who are delayed in speech…..which is how I will use it. It has tons of video of the speech therapist actually working with children! This was so informative. Laura Mize explains what she is doing while showing actual video of her working with children with delays! These are things you can incorporate in everyday interaction with your child. I finished watching the video feeling as I could really teach my child to talk!

    From the time I first learned Sophie had autism, I have wanted to see what a speech therapist actually did while working with a child. I desperately want to homeschool Sophie, but until now I have been in the dark about what the experts do to get children to talk. Now I have video examples to work with.

    I watch this video with my 3 children in the room, and my daughter Sophie was actually playing along with the video! I highly recommend this video for anyone who has a child with delayed speech. It is worth every penny.” Sarah, mother, and author of the website http://www.wakingsophie.com

  10. Kate, Developmental Interventionist, Kentucky

    “I have worked with quite a few speech therapists in my practice as a developmental interventionist. In ten years, I’ve only worked with one that was universally appreciated by parents and young children alike! Thanks to this DVD, you no longer have to live in our county to benefit from Laura Mize’s unique and effective approach. For a minimal investment, she comes live to your living room to demonstrate her highly successful approach to speech and language therapy.” Kate, Developmental Interventionist, Kentucky

  11. Kristyn, a mother from New Hampshire

    “Seeing these tips in action was very beneficial. When you have a child that is language delayed, you want to do as much at home as you can – after all, our children are at home most of all! And this DVD helped me do that.”  Kristyn, a mother from New Hampshire

  12. Ranjana, pediatrician and mother, Ohio

    “I think this DVD is a tremendous & invaluable guidance tool for parents, preschool teachers, caregivers, and other therapists (speech, occupational, developmental, etc) and should be used as an accessory aid for anyone involved in early childhood development.” Ranjana, pediatrician and mother, Ohio

  13. Carey White, OTR/L, Occupational Therapist

    “Teach Me to Talk is an easy to watch DVD that empowers parents and caregivers with the ‘how to’ skills to not only promote speech development but also PLAY. As an occupational therapist, I believe that play is an important ‘job’ for a child, but it requires more interaction from a parent than just watching a child play. Finally, parents have a visual tool that teaches them how to interact and play with their child so that he or she will not only learn to talk but will be on the road to reaching their optimal potential! The techniques are easy to implement, and you will discover playing with your child is actually fun!” Carey White, OTR/L, Occupational Therapist

  14. Kristyn, mother of a child with apraxia, New Hampshire

    “What I especially loved was that it wasn’t just clips of the PERFECT session; you showed us what to do when a kid turned away, or lost interest, or was more difficult to engage (for instance, touching the child or changing their position). Let’s face it, sometimes kids have their own agenda!” Kristyn, mother of a child with apraxia, New Hampshire

  15. Robyn, Wyoming

    “Just watching how my son interacted with the DVD made me a believer in how engaged he will become once it stops being ‘work’ and begins being fun.” Robyn, mother of a 3-year-old with a language delay and apraxia, Wyoming

  16. Holly, New Hampshire

    “The whole idea of using food during speech is awesome. I will usually reward him with something after therapy especially if his self-esteem is a little low that day or he’s just having an off day, but I never thought of buying something to use when working with him, nor have any of his therapists used food .” Holly, mother of a 3-year-old with apraxia, New Hampshire.

  17. Kristyn, a mom from New Hampshire

    “I also liked the tips in the ‘withholding’ section. A lot of times, we Moms are instructed to do so (by putting toys out of reach and such), but sometimes it is difficult to judge just how much is too much or how long is too long. You gave easy to understand tip to follow. How to push just far enough to elicit a response, but not so far as to discourage language, or cause too much frustration.” Kristyn, a mom from New Hampshire

  18. Jane Rice, RN, and Michael Rice, MD

    “As members of the medical community and parents of two toddlers who experienced speech delay, we can personally attest to the value and effectiveness of Laura’s instructional video, Teach Me to Talk. The teaching points reinforced throughout the DVD are parent-friendly, reproducible, and easy to follow. Laura repeatedly demonstrates simple and effective techniques that promote language skills, while at the same time emphasizing fun and engaging environment for both parent and child. Jane Rice, RN, and Michael Rice, MD

  19. Patti Hamaguchi, Speech-Language Pathologist

    “Hi Laura. I just finished watching your DVD and am so impressed  You really did a terrific job putting everything into “parent-friendly” language, and your examples are super. Thanks so much for doing this. I look forward to sharing it with the parents in our practice. By the way, I am working on a 3rd edition for my “Childhood Speech, Language & Listening Problems: What Every Parent Should Know” book, and I will definitely include your DVD and website. You have so much great information on there.” Patti Hamaguchi, Speech-Language Pathologist, and Director, Hamaguchi & Associates, Cupertino, CA 

  20. Yvonne Smith, Speech and Language Pathologist

    “I have been a Speech and Language Pathologist for 12 years, and I have worked in the early intervention for the last 2 years. In my quest to provide the best services I could for the children I worked with, I scoured the internet looking for therapy tips.I hit a gold mine when I found Laura Mize’s Teach Me to Talk website. Her website has wonderfully informative articles, but being the visual person that I am, it was even more helpful to see her therapy techniques in action. The Teach Me to Talk DVD is a valuable tool for anyone looking for hands-on ideas to help develop speech and language skills for toddlers, and it is an especially valuable tool for those in the profession. No matter if you are a seasoned pro or a grad student; you will surely find many helpful tips and ideas to make the most of your therapy sessions with toddlers. the DVD does a great job of putting the information into very simple and easy to understand steps.I also found it helpful that Laura did not just show the sessions where ‘everything’ goes perfect because in the real therapy world it often does not. Her DVD includes several clips that show you how to playfully re-direct those ‘little angels’ when they might not be at their ‘toddler best.’This is really a wonderful tool, and I will be recommending the DVD not only to my early intervention parents but also to the other early intervention speech therapist I know.” —Yvonne Smith, Speech and Language Pathologist MS, CCC-SLP, Sacramento, California

"I just want to tell how fortunate I feel to have found your website and you!! I became a special instructor in EI almost a year ago and I started with hardly any applicable training. I felt so lost and confused as how to help the kids I work with learn how to use words and play. Honestly, I didn't even understand the importance of play, although I always played with my kids. But, once I started to watch your podcasts and get some of your manuals I felt a weight had been lifted off my shoulders and that I could finally teach these kids and their families something of value from a real therapist and based on research!. Thank you so much for seeing the need to help other EI service providers and providing a forum to share your knowledge and years of valuable experience. I'm sure you get a lot of these emails every week if not every day, but I wanted to make I could add to those notes of gratitude!! THANK YOU again!!"


"Just wanted to say a HUGE thank you for these emails and your books, I have them all and they have seriously saved and improved my sessions with my kiddos. Huge thank you."


"I was very frustrated with how speech therapy was going for my child. I would take him and drop him off and not hear much of anything from his therapist and teachers other than, "He had a good (or a bad!) day." Your materials were invaluable for us because I learned how to work with him on his speech. I learned how to teach him to talk and play. I learned how to pay attention to his cues and work with him to teach him to communicate. Without it, I have no doubt he still wouldn’t talk."


"Hi! I just wanted to say (from an SLT perspective) how incredibly useful I am finding absolutely all of your articles, blogs and resources - I only discovered your site last month and have just received all your books which I feel I am learning more than on my entire university training course!! But also the way in which you give specific, realistic, fun, encouraging ideas for working with parents is really just fantastic, I only wish I have your site sooner! Thanks so much from the UK! Kind regards."


"I just wanted to reach out to say thank you for making things a little easier to manage for me this year. I made the transition from school SLP to private therapist about a year ago. While the change was welcome, it was a lot, and I was just getting my footing in the clinic when I began teletherapy full time. Your website has been a huge lifeline in helping me work with late talkers and coach their parents in an accessible but effective way, even remotely. I look forward to getting your emails each week. I am floored by the amount of valuable, free information that your website provides, and I’m looking forward to investing in your workbooks soon. A sincere thank you for all you do!"


"You are an inspiration! I am truly grateful for the way you put into words and writing how to do what we do as SLPs. At this time in my 13 years of practicing, I find your encouragement keeps me going. As a single mom, I find it a stretch to buy materials these days and I am so thankful for the freebies you so generously share that help me teach my families. I don’t have much time to put together lists or quick references for parents!! Much gratitude!!"
