Parents, you have the power to jumpstart your baby's development!

Sign up for Small Talk and participate in a series of free online classes filled with learning, support, and valuable research.

About the project:

We’re testing an exciting program to help you, the parent, create an enriching language environment for your child  and learn about how to help your baby’s brain grow. There is no cost to participants.

Benefits of participating:

  • You will learn more ways to talk, read, and play with your baby and receive feedback with a new “talk pedometer.”
  • You will learn how these skills help your baby's brain grow.
  • Small Talk is both a parent education program, and a research project. By participating, you will  help us better understand how to deliver such a program in the community. 

You can participate if:

  • Your child is 0-30 months old.
  • You have access to a cellular phone.
  • You will attend the meetings and use the "talk pedometer."

If you'd like to sign up or be notified when a new session is scheduled, please e-mail or call (515) 239-5646 ext. 3.
