I’ve always found when communicating with your little one, an excellent way to support infant development is by using effective communication skills to navigate through those ups and downs of parenthood.

Applying a good dose of empathy and thinking like they do often goes a long way towards using effective communication skills and helps a lot. Yes, of course it’s easier said than done!

In this week’s episode of First Time Mum’s Chat I’m talking with author, special educator and behavior therapist Chris Lake. Chris had his first child during the COVID pandemic and his interactions led him to write his book, Help Your Toddler Meet Their Milestones: 101 Behavior Hacks. During our discussion, you’ll hear Chris talk about how his book helps parents with infant development and learn how to help their child communicate using effective communication skills.

And much more!

About Chris Lake

Chris Lake

Chris Lake is the author of “Help Your Toddler Meet Their Milestones: 101 Behavior Hacks.”

He is a native New Yorker who has been working with children with developmental delays across the past two decades.

He received his Masters in both General and Special Education in 2012. And in 2014, he started Community for a Cause, a nonprofit to initially advocate for children with lead poisoning. 

This nonprofit has successfully worked to aid New Yorkers in all five boroughs as well as people abroad. Community for a Cause has several branches that include Special Needs Advocacy, Homeless Relief, Sexual Violence Prevention, Environmental Protection, and a Community Building Branch. Through his charity, Chris Lake remains committed to doing all he can to help those in New York who are without a voice and all those who are in need of support.

In looking to expand his ability to provide for families of children with Autism, he wrote his book “Help Your Toddler Meet Their Milestones: 101 Behavior Hacks” to give families and providers a time-tested blueprint of how to develop children using evidence-based practice.

*A portion of all book proceeds goes towards preventing and alleviating childhood lead poisoning.*
