This five-hour self-study course for pediatric SLPs is now available for ASHA CEUs!

We all know it's true and the research backs it up...

For our youngest communicators, we need the parents on board and participating in the intervention in order to optimize progress.

This means that we need to help already busy parents find ways to support language development at home in between sessions. It may not be realistic for many families to set aside time each day to practice communication skills. Fortunately, the activities that fill their schedule each day are full of opportunities to support language development.

This course was created for SLPs who work with children under four and will teach you how to harness the power of daily routines to support language development.

This topic gets to the heart of early intervention but this course is for all pediatric SLPs, not just EI therapists. We will cover: 

1. How to select early language strategies and embed them into what the family is already doing.

2. How to get parents more involved in providing support between sessions by harnessing the power of daily routines! 

3. How to plan and execute a routines-based therapy session.

You'll leave this course feeling confident and excited to support families within their daily routines. You'll also be equipped with dozens of handouts with specific ideas for daily routines and the blueprint for making parent carryover a success.

Five Professional Development Hours

The video modules for this course cover four primary topics:

  1. The rationale for routines-based support and the research to back it up
  2. Early language strategies and other supports that can be embedded into daily routines to increase engagement, participation, and communication.
  3. A step-by-step guide for implementing routines-based intervention
  4. Specific ideas for supporting language development in 13 common routines
60+ Page Course Workbook

The digital course workbook contains over 60 pages of printable handouts to supplement the course topics. It includes a parent handout explaining the power of routines-based support, a caregiver questionnaire for gathering information on a family's goals for each routine, and a visit summary form that includes a joint plan for parent-implemented interventions.

It also includes three pages of handouts for 13 different daily routines and with a page for each of the following topics:

  • page one: tips for modeling language and a list of vocabulary for each routine including action words and phrases
  • page two: ideas for augmenting communication in each routine with gestures and ASL signs
  • page three: a song for each routine and additional ideas for supporting language development

Course Testimonials

Eva, Early Intervention SLP

I absolutely loved this course! As both a pediatric SLP and a mom, I highly recommend The Daily Routines Course: Transforming Everyday Moments.

This course provides essential tools to support early communicators and empower families. Guiding you step-by-step through routines, practical strategies, case studies, and relevant research, this course goes beyond the basics and is beneficial even for experienced clinicians. The handouts are functional, parent-friendly, and beautifully designed. The included ASL vocabulary and songs for routines are incredibly helpful!

You will leave this course with the knowledge, resources, and confidence to enhance early communication and set families up for success.

Jessie, Early Intervention SLP

This course is amazing. My team has been through other trainings that were way too overwhelming. This course is well organized into specific routines, making it easy for early intervention teams to break it down and offer parents very specific tasks to focus on.


It also includes a variety of learning styles for children - music, motor (sign language), visual (highlighting what you SEE during a routine), auditory (highlighting what you HEAR during a routine), and tactile/experiential (having the child touch, feel and DO during routines). Showing parents the POWER it gives children to participate during routines is so critical for their learning!

Sarah, Pediatric SLP

As a pediatric speech language pathologist working with children and families in their homes, I am so glad to have had the opportunity to take the Transforming Everyday Moments Course by Joanne Cazeau. This course delves deeply into the significance of daily routines in fostering language development in children. Each module is thoughtfully created to cover essential concepts, from understanding the powerful role routines have in a child’s life, to different types of routines (Caregiving, Helping/Family, Community etc.) and practical strategies for language integration.

What sets this course apart is its emphasis on empowering parents and recognizing some of the everyday barriers/challenges they may be facing. Joanne seamlessly integrates evidence-based practice with real-life examples and case studies, making it easy for parents and caregivers to implement learned strategies during everyday interactions in the home or out in the community. I cannot recommend this course enough!

Jamie, Early Intervention SLP

I am always looking for ways to share information with parents/caregivers, and this course did not disappoint. Everything is laid out so beautifully: easy to understand and implement, appealing to the eye, and super functional. I can’t wait to print out pages, throw them in my on-the-go file box, and share them with my families. I wish this course had been available when I started my career many years ago.

Meg, Pediatric SLP

As an SLP, I absolutely loved this course. It is informative, detailed, and beautifully organized. The course workbook provides SLPs with a clear explanation and reasoning of specific techniques/strategies to use with clients and caregivers, leaving them feeling confident in their work. Additionally, it provides resources that you can share with your parents, promoting strong and trusting relationships.

I highly recommend taking this course.
