  • Educating parents about the importance of talking to their infants/toddlers, and in utero, to stimulate language development;
  • Testing gross/fine motor skills and other developmental milestones;
  • Training parents how to monitor their children’s progress;
  • Educating parents about practices at home that will support their children’s learning and development;
