Hanen 'More Than Words' - Parent Education Program

Learn proven strategies to support your child’s communication skills.

As a parent, you know how challenging it can be for your child with social communication difficulties to interact meaningfully with others and connect with the world around them.

The Hanen ‘More Than Words’  Program was designed specifically for parents of children aged 5 and under on the autism spectrum or with other social communication difficulties. This research-based, practical program provides parents with the tools, strategies and support they need to help their children reach their full communication potential.

You’ll learn:

  • What motivates your child to communicate
  • How to make interactions with your child last longer
  • Tips for using pictures and print to help your child’s understanding
  • Strategies for how to talk so that your child understands you
  • Ways to help your child make friends
