The Hanen Program: More Than Words

Wonderland Child & Family Services is pleased to present More than Words. This practical, research-based Hanen curriculum promotes the social and communication development of young children with Autism Spectrum Disorder or related social communication difficulties.

More Than Words Offers:

  • 6 two-hour classes for small groups of parents and caregivers.
  • 2 sessions with a Hanen-certified speech-language pathologist to discuss specific communication goals and implement strategies.
  • 1 individual videotaped session of interactions between you and your child.
  • Interactive sessions for parents/caregivers and children to build skills together.
  • Support from other parents with similar challenges and experiences.

Why are Parents/Caregivers involved in More Than Words?

Parents/caregivers are the most important people in a child’s life. One of the greatest gifts they can give a child is the help he or she needs to communicate and connect with the world. The More Than Words Program teaches parents/caregivers practical ways to encourage language skills during everyday routines and activities.

Space is limited and advance registration is required. Insurance will be billed for individual speech therapy sessions.
