A Little Bit About Feeding First™ and TalkTools Virtual Conferences

Going back to March of 2020 -- which in many ways seems like so long ago -- was a turning point for TalkTools. We had a full schedule of in-person workshops on our Training Calendar and were moving forward with "business as usual." Then the world shut down -- and shut down quickly. We had to pivot and reached out to 1000s of speech and feeding professionals to survey their training needs in a virtual environment.

That's when the lightbulb went off -- let's gather experts from across the globe, from a wide variety of perspectives and professions who will provide the latest research, trending topics and practical, results-driven strategies in a virtual environment. And just like that, our Conference Program was launched.

Our first conference was "The Exceptional Child" in May 2020, followed by Feeding First in October. Between the two conferences, we trained more than 1000 speech and feeding professionals from around the world. Feedback was overwhelmingly positive, but also relevant and and valuable. These results inspired us to continue our Conference Program.

Since 2020, we've held 10 virtual conferences and have empowered over 3500 speech and feeding professionals from 45 countries with the tools, technique and training to expand their knowledge, grow their practice and further develop their skills.

This year's Feeding First™ will continue the tradition!
