It Takes Two To Talk: For parents of speech-delayed children.
More than Words: For parents of children diagnosed with autism
By learning in a small group with other parents, you get support and input from people who understand what you are going through. Not only do you walk away from the program armed with strategies that are proven to improve your child's social and language development, but you also gain a valuable support network of peers.
Kristen is our Director of Clinical Services and specializes in early language development as well as autism. She also happens to be the mother of three children herself, as well as a speech-language pathologist with tremendous experience. Kristen is Hanen-certified for this program!
What is it? More Than Words is a 12-week parent-training program developed by the renowned Hanen Centre in Canada for parents of young children (under age five, but exceptions can be made for families with older children) with autism. This program will be offered in a small group setting via Zoom (2-2.5 hours each session) allowing you to participate from the comfort of your own home. Registration is limited to 6-8 families. (The program is for the adults, not the children.)
How much is this program? The full cost of the 12- week program is $1625. This includes a pre-assessment session, 8 zoom group sessions, as well as three individual video feedback sessions. The individual sessions ($825) may be covered under your insurance for out-of-network benefits.
The Hanen programs are run twice a year, beginning in October and in January
