You feel concerned that your child's first words are slow to come.
You feel frustrated with the behaviour challenges and power struggles that are impacting everyday life.
You are wondering what you can do to help your child communicate more effectively.
then this course was made for you!
After working with hundreds of families (and having children of my own), I realized that so many people asked the same question! They asked “what can I do at home to help my child communicate?”

Hi, I’m Danielle Dureault and I am a Registered Speech-Language Pathologist in Alberta, Canada with over 20 years of experience in a variety of pediatric settings (public, private, hospital, schools, home-based). My passion is to support children and their families to develop the best possible communication skills through connection and play. Over the course of my practice, I have noticed that services are decreasing and parents have less access to support. That has led me to create Play with Words Speech and Language Services and to begin expanding to online courses that are accessible to all. I’d love to connect with you and support you and your child’s journey to effective communication.
