At Time 2 Talk we dedicate our minds, hearts, and time to your child’s development.  Our therapy sessions, whether individual or in a group, will provide your child the tools and confidence they need to communicate and interact in all settings. 


We recognize that all children learn and acquire skills in their own ways.  We take the time to teach your child the way they learn best.
