hanen parent training?
The Hanen programs are family centered classes that are taught by Hanen Certified Speech Language Pathologists. These are taught in a small group setting through the use of activities and group discussions to enhance the communication between parents and their children.
WE OFFER IT TAKES TWO TO TALK AND MORE THAN WORDS
The Hanen center’s family-focused programs for parents are led by Hanen Certified speech-language pathologists (SLPs) who have received specialized training at a Hanen Workshop. At Bright Start Therapies, we offer two different Hanen courses for our families,
“IT TAKES TWO TO TALK” and “MORE THAN WORDS”.
All Hanen Programs® use a combination of group training sessions (where only parents and the SLP are present) and individual consultations with the SLP (in which the child is present). This provides a comprehensive and personalized learning experience for each family participating in the program. For parents whose child is experiencing a communication difficulty, Hanen’s specialized programs can provide them with the tools they need for helping their child reach his or her fullest communication potential.
