Toucan Grow is a 4-week interactive series for parent + baby or parent + toddler. Using movement, yoga, massage, breathing, songs and play we will lay the foundation for your child's development. Classes are taught by me, Nadda Warshanna, MA, CCC-SLP, licensed early intervention speech language pathologist!
The Toucan Grow class taught me things about my baby that the pediatrician doesn't have time to explain. Nadda gave us parents more than information. She helped me step back and reflect on the ways I interact with my baby and how I influence her development. She showed me the power of language, and the ways to foster communication, emotional health, and positive relationships. She gave us a safe space to check our assumptions and misconceptions, talk about personal struggles and discover how much we had in common. From societal pressures we're up against to the joys of play. Nadda offers a rich experience of knowledge and community to those who are open and ready to grow with their child.
Sam is so happy when he hears Nadda will be visiting us to play. We are so grateful to have had her support, both for us as parents and for Sam's speech and language development. Most notably, we learned to be more patient with ourselves and understanding that not all children learn and communicate in the same way. Nadda exhibited a great ability to connect with Sam, which is not easy. She genuinely has a passion for wanting to help her families improve and it was visible in every session she had with us!
In each Toucan Grow class, you'll bring yourself, your baby, and a small blanket! We'll start by checking in, celebrating the tiny victories, and acknowledging some challenging moments in the week. The structure of the class will be the same, but we'll discuss a variety of topics that address your interests and pain points. I'll demonstrate ways to connect, play, sing, talk, and support your child's development through songs and activities. The class will be focused on helping you and your little connect and interact while boosting your child's development!
No, this is not speech therapy. I'm a licensed Speech-Language Pathologist and do offer speech therapy and parent coaching services. But Toucan Grow is a developmentally enriching program for parents with infants and toddlers. In this class you'll learn how to foster your whole child's development through natural everyday play, movement and communication interactions! Toucan Grow can also be a great addition to speech therapy!
