The propose of the study was to determine the effectiveness of using Teach Me to Talk strategies from Speech Pathologist Laura Mize, with children from the birth to three-year-old early intervention program. The study looked at children who have communication needs based on qualifying scores after completing a special education evaluation and the use of specific interventions to increase their language. The researcher wanted to determine students’ improvement with their communication goals and how parent involvement supports their learning. The study was originally structured around weekly home visits that were ongoing since the child qualified for special education services. Parents provided information on how the intervention was working in their natural routines. The early intervention teacher that was instructing the home visits used observation notes and progress reports will provide knowledge on the effectiveness of these interventions. The results from this study indicated that interventions were working but due to COVID 19 pandemic the research project had to be changed and amended to an autoethnography.
