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.
As a qualified Hanen More than word trainer I can coach and support you/your partner in the best ways to help yours child to develop their interaction and communication with others using the Hanen Approach. We can do this in individual face - face sessions with you and your child and will include:
A pre-programme consultation
5 clinic/home based support sessions - each session we look at strategy, discuss how it can be helpful, look at some examples videos together, i can support you trying it out with your child and we discuss and you make a home plan to practice between sessions.
2/3 video feedback sessions - these visits are for you and your child 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, celebrate this, look at how your child is responding to you, we can trouble shoot and discuss what you can modify to help even more
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.
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
