The information found on this website has either been created or curated by Lynn to ensure families are receiving reliable, up-to-date, research driven information regarding:

When will my baby start talking? Should I be worried about my child’s language? Is what my child doing normal? What can I do to help my child learn to read? Should I use baby talk with my baby? What are some great language boosting toys for my 2 year old?

These questions, and many more, are on the minds of today’s parents, and the answers should be EASY to find, ACCURATE because they come from sound research evidence, and FREE to access.

Talking Together was founded by paediatric speech-language pathologist and mother of two, Lynn Carson. With over 15 years experience working with children and their families, Lynn has dedicated her career to helping parents support their children’s growing language skills and Talking Together is the online representation of this work.
