Little Sprouts Speech Therapy is excited to be offering cooking classes for your toddler! This is an opportunity for you and your little one to engage in a real-life experience that will foster and support your child's language development in a small group setting. All classes will be led by Olivia, a licensed speech-language pathologist who specializes in early language development.
Where do we meet?
Classes are located at the Be Well Collective in Upper Arlington. The address is:

Who is this for?
Our toddler cooking classes are intended for toddlers ages 18 months up to 3.5 years of age and their caregivers. They are designed to support the receptive and expressive language development of all toddlers. Our toddler cooking classes are for those toddlers who are developing language as expected, as well as for those toddlers who need a bit of extra support to encourage language development.
*Please note, group language classes are a wonderful supplement to individual therapy; however, they are not a substitute for individualized therapy. If you have concerns or curiosities regarding your child's communication development, please reach out via email (email@example.com) or connect with me after class, I am happy to support you in any way I can!
Why is this important?
Research states that children learn new skills best when engaged in real-life experiences, such as cooking and sharing a snack with others.
Toddler cooking classes help to promote:
Social communication and connection with others
Turn-taking + ability to share
Increased self-esteem + independence
What else do I need to know?
Allergies + Dietary Restrictions: If your child has allergies or dietary restrictions of any kind, please include these on the form when you register. We take food safety and individual comfort very seriously and will adapt any and all recipes to meet the needs of your child, but it is your responsibility to mention these when you register, so your child's needs can be accommodated.
Caregiver Presence: Caregivers are expected to be present for the duration of the class.
