Webinar: What Does it Take to Learn to Talk?

Who should attend?

This free webinar series is for families of babies from birth to 24 months — whether you have concerns about your baby’s development, or your baby is reaching all of their milestones on time — and families expecting a baby. When it comes to your baby, peace of mind is everything. We also welcome grandparents or other caregivers, early childhood educators, other professionals, and anyone interested in supporting babies to learn to talk and much more. This webinar is a companion to our resources and tools for families at

What will we cover?

Baby Navigator is collaborating with the Reading Rockets to bring this webinar series to you. We watch videos together that show how to turn activities you’re doing everyday into learning moments for your baby . . . how to support your baby through challenging moments to get ahead of the terrible twos . . . and much more. These simple moments matter. Especially because your baby’s brain is developing at an amazing rate. What you do and say now can make all the difference.

Each webinar will cover the following agenda:

  • What does it take to learn to talk — gestures, sounds, actions and more
  • How to support your baby’s learning in everyday activities
  • How to get ahead of the terrible twos
  • Why join Baby Navigator — learn about our free online resources and tools from pregnancy until your baby turns 24 months old
We will feature new content and videos each webinar to focus our conversation about social communication milestones in babies from birth to 24 months and how to support your baby’s learning.
