Tonya Hayes’ knowledge and experience allows her trainings to connect the dots between the many services that children and families are a part of. I always leave her trainings with new ideas and a fresh perspective to incorporate into my work and the services I provide. Thank you, Tonya!Hannah Lurcock, About Play Early Intervention
Working with Tonya has been an amazing experience. Her wealth of knowledge, passion for the field showed in every training she conducted. She made such an impact that we started to see teachers utilize her materials and resources immediately resulting in improvement in classroom behaviors. Tonya was more than willing to work with me to customize trainings which allowed for me to really cater to what my teachers were interested in learning about. Her trainings were engaging, hands on and full of practical ready to use materials that made my teachers feel like that walked away with fresh ideas.Mandy Hutchison Blueprints EHS/HS PD Specialist
I took Tonya Hayes’ Sign Language training and found it very helpful. We implemented 2 signs into our classroom this year. “Please and Stop” and “Please and Help” We used these because of the behaviors in our classroom. The children took to these visual signs so well and it decreased the behaviors in our room. Instead of the kids using anger and their hands to solve problems they began using the signs and they knew their friend did not like what they were doing. Im hoping to add more signs and visual ques for the upcoming year!Beonka Salazar Blueprints Head Start Teacher

We have had the pleasure of having Tonya in our home for two and a half years. She has worked with our youngest son who had a stroke in the nicu shortly after birth and has had hearing complications along with speech apraxia. Tonya has also worked with our daughter who has speech Apraxia and Dyslexia. She has taken our daughter from being pretty much nonverbal to a child who can talk your ear off! She has helped give our daughter her voice along with her confidence to know she can do anything she wants to in this world.
Tonya has been a huge blessing to our family as she has spent five hours a week in our home working with our children and helping me learn strategies and methods of being able to help my children gain strengths in speech. I know without a doubt my kids wouldn’t be where they are today without having Tonya as part of our team.Emily Langley, Mother and Cheif champion for four children
I absolutely loved learning the basic signs as well as everyday words and phrases from Mrs. Tonya’s course. It was fun, very informative and beneficial to me and my colleagues in our day to day activities and communication with our kids and parents. It is always fun to learn something new, especially a new language and she makes it very interactive and engaging. How she teaches definitely makes a difference in retaining the knowledge.”Heather Carnley Early Childhood Professional at Creative Beginnings Christian Childcare Center.
