You want to help your child learn to talk--maybe he/she is saying a few words, maybe not. How can you help? The "It Takes Two to Talk" is a great first step!
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 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? It Takes Two to Talk is an 8-week parent-training program developed by the renowned Hanen Centre in Canada for parents of young children (under age five) with language delays. This program will be offered in a small group setting via Zoom (2.5 hours each session) allowing you to participate from the comfort of your own home. Only 6-8 families can attend each scheduled program. (The program is for the adults, not the children.)
How much is this program? The full cost of the 8- week program is $800. This includes a pre-assessment session, 8 zoom group sessions, as well as three individual video feedback sessions.
Let us know if you are interested in this parent-training program! We will offer a free 1.5-2-hour orientation on Wednesday, June 30, 2021 at 7:30pm PST to answer any questions you may have about the program and to see if this is a good fit for you and your child. There is limited space available, so please keep that in mind. We expect the classes to start in mid-August. Please let us know what times/days work best for you once you are sure you can make the commitment to attend all 8 sessions and we can see what works for most families.
This Program is offered through Zoom!
