What sets the Baby TALK Model apart from other early childhood models?

Baby TALK employs a relationship-based approach to its work of coming alongside families. Flexible implementation allows professionals to use Baby TALK to fulfill the real needs of communities and families. While the approach is standardized, programs may adapt the model in order to address their goals.  

Universal access through Newborn Encounters enables Baby TALK programs to “Cast a Net” over families and to begin their relationship-based on the strengths of each newborn and parent.
