HANEN: It takes two to talk

Empowering parents to connect more deeply with their child who struggles with language and communication.

Are your child’s language and communication challenges making it difficult for you to connect? Do you ever feel unsure if you are doing the “right things” to help them at home?

By the end of the 6-week program (and over 18 hours of personalized training), you will have the tools to transform everyday routines into language rich experiences for your child.

Program Overview
Research has proven that with the right tools, parents are often their child’s best language teacher (even better than speech therapy alone). This evidence-based program is geared specifically for parents of children between the ages of 1 and 5 who are struggling with language and communication.

You will be taught practical strategies to help your child learn language naturally from you, their first and best teacher! Here are some examples of what you’ll learn to do:

  1. Recognize your child’s stage and style of communication so that you know which steps to take next
  2. Identify what motivates your child to interact with you so you’ll know how to get conversations started
  3. Adjust everyday routines to help your child take turns communicating and keep interactions going
  4. Follow your child’s lead to build his/her confidence and encourage him/her to communicate
