Hanen More Than Words

Hanen More Than Words is a family centered approach, created specifically for parents of young children on the Autism Spectrum or with other social communication difficulties.  More Than Words gives families practical strategies to support your child's specific communication needs through incorporating the child's everyday activities and play.  

More Than Words does this by empowering you to help your child reach the following three goals:

  1.  Improved social communication and back-and forth interactions

  2.  Improved play skills

  3.  Improved imitation skills

Here are some of the valuable things you'll learn when you attend the More Than Words program:

  • What motivates your child to communicate

  • How to use your knowledge about your child to set appropriate and realistic goals

  • How to make interactions with your child last longer
