Know more about our background and what we can do for you.
The idea of serving early language learners in play began in July 2014. This idea came to life in September 2015 with the establishment of Talk and Play LLC with the focus on incorporating the Reggio Emilia approach to learning with speech-language services. With Reggio Emilia, children construct meaning of their environment, community, and relationships with people and things through a hundred languages.
The Reggio Emilia approach in speech-language pathology has been directed to language and communication. The owner is a communication specialist whose main goal is to help children become effective communicators. It is all about communication and helping children interact with parents, teachers, peers, and communities by communicating effectively in a hundred languages.
