Hanen: More Than Words Programme is finally available in Wiltshire!
As a parent, you know how challenging it can be for your child with Autism Spectrum Disorder or other social communication difficulties to interact meaningfully with others and connect with the world around them.
The More Than Words Programme was designed specifically for parents of children ages 5 and under who have Autism or other social communication difficulties. Addressing the unique needs of these children, the programme provides parents with the tools, strategies and support they need to help their children reach their full communication potential.
The More Than Words parent programme includes:
8 training sessions in small, personalised groups.
A Hanen Certified Speech Language Therapist leading the programme.
A pre-programme consultation for you and your child with your Speech Language Therapist.
Three individual visits for you and your child with your SLT in which you are recorded while playing with your child. Then you and your SLT watch the recorded interaction to see what your doing that's helping and what you can modify to help even more.
Please note we also offer an individual version of the More Than Words Parent Programme that consists of an initial consultation, 5 clinic/home based support sessions and 2 video feedback sessions.
Benefits of More Than Words Programme:
Practical strategies you can use in everyday life.
An evidence based and reputable programme that's worth your time.
The chance to connect with other parents.
What parents say about the More Than Words Programme...
“My son has made incredible strides due to your programme. He has surprised a lot of people. What I really love about the programme is that we are taught to work with our children. After all, an SLT may see them once a week, but we are with them around the clock, so if we can help with their speech it is actually a more beneficial situation for the children. Your course is invaluable and a must-do for parents, relatives and friends. I am forever grateful”
– Debra, mother of 4-year-old Anthony
