Imagine how you would feel every day if you had a room of peaceful, calm and confident children? 

Some would say to stop dreaming.

 

However, research shows that children with emotional behavioural problems have poor language skills.

Chaos arises when children feel unheard, frustrated and disconnected.

 

So, what enables them to connect, feel heard and seen? 

 Let’s work together to break down barriers to communication and boost language development for every single child.

 

Language Unlocked will equip you with a strong, evidence-based collection of pedagogical practices to improve language development.

  • Recent results from a study in June 2022 have showed that a lot of educators feel the exact same way. 

  • This is scary as the same study commented that parents in Australia have identified YOU to be their primary source of information about communication difficulties, ahead of speech pathologists and GP’s. 
  • No pressure, but your role as an educator is so important. You have the ability to significantly equip children with language skills to make them successful at school and in life. 
  • However, the reality is 22.9% of children begin school with communication skills that are not developmentally on track. 

So, what can you do about it?

It's time to do something different. 

  • Tap into my speech pathologist expertise and learn the strategies that I use every day in therapy to enable my children to break through their language difficulties.
  • Over 8 lessons I will teach you speech therapy principles, techniques and strategies to use in your daily activities and routines.

 I'll make it super simple, practical and easy to follow and implement. 

I’m all in.

I’m Emily.

Children are our future. I am passionate about helping them develop and learn. I firmly believe that all children can learn, even those with delays and developmental disorders. We (as those working with children) just need to know how to teach effectively and alternatively.  

Children who have average or above abilities will learn through most programs and activities. Children who are borderline average or below average often struggle and need things to be done differently.  

So, what do you do when interactions, play, emotions and conversations breakdown? You need to teach differently, simply, specifically and uniquely. Language Unlocked will equip you to do just this. 

I have been a speech pathologist for almost 15 years. In that time, I have seen the number of children with language development difficulties rise. I have also worked with hundreds of educators and witnessed them frustrated by growing therapy waiting lists, rising costs of services and an inability to help as they know the child needs more and can’t access a speech pathologist. 

I created Language Unlocked to serve as building a bridge between speech therapy and educators. I believe that now is the time when we need to collaborate more effectively than ever before to help our children.  

Language Unlocked will equip you to do just this. It will transform the way you think, teach and talk to your children. I would love to help you grow in your professional skills and see your children’s language skills ‘unlock’.

"I am so so so incredibly excited to implement many of the techniques learnt during this course to help many of the children I work with. The information was super informative and really caught my attention each time. I was really fascinated by the key word sign and the cued articulation as I wasn’t very familiar with the concept but can completely see how I can add these daily.  It was absolutely incredible!"
