What is the Baby TALK Professional Association?

After participating in a Baby TALK Training, you become a "Certified Baby TALK Practitioner". The Baby TALK Professional Association (BTPA) is a collaboration of Certified Baby TALK Practitioners that are using Baby TALK methods and materials in their work with young families. By systemizing communication, the intention of the BTPA is to provide ongoing support and resources to our colleagues.
