It Takes Two to Talk - The Hanen Program for Children with Language Delays

Communication Development for Children with Language Delays

HASA is pleased to present the It Takes Two to Talk Program, designed specifically for parents of young children who have been identified as having a language delay. In a small, personalized group setting, parents learn practical strategies to help their children learn language naturally throughout their day together. The It Takes Two to Talk Program teaches you, step-by-step, how to become your child’s most important language teacher. The program shows you how to:

  • Recognize your child’s stage and style of communication so that you know which steps to take next
  • Identify what motivates your child to interact with you so you’ll know how to get conversations started
  • Adjust everyday routines to help your child take turns and keep interactions going
  • Follow your child’s lead to build his confidence and encourage them to communicate
  • Add language to interactions with your child to help them understand language and then use it when ready
  • Tweak the way you play and read books with your child to help them learn language
  • Change the way you speak to your child so that they will understand and learn new words

The course is structured in 8 training sessions for parents in small personalized groups led by a Hanen-certified speech-language pathologist leading the program. Also included are a pre-program consultation and three individual recorded visits for you and your child with the speech-language pathologist.
