The Hanen Program for Parents of Children with Autism Spectrum Disorders
More than Words™ is a family-focused program
that gives parents
of children with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) and related social difficulties in
2 to 7 year range, practical
tools to help their child communicate. The
program’s philosophy is that because parents are the most important people in
the child’s life, they are the best people to
help their child learn to communicate.
Your child will learn to communicate when he or she:
• Pays attention to you
• Finds enjoyment in two-way communication
• Understands what others say
• Interacts with other people
• Has structure, repetition, and predictability in his or her life
Dates: The program
will be offered on Tuesday
mornings for parents
and occasional Tuesday
afternoons for the parents and their child. Families will be asked to participate
in an individual afternoon
pre-program consultation with their child on February 2 or February
9. The dates of the program are: 2/23, 3/1, 3/8*, 3/15, 3/22, 3/29*, 4/5, 4/19, 5/3*, and
5/10. All parent sessions (in bold) will meet Tuesday mornings
from 10:00 AM-12:30 PM. In these sessions parents will participate in small
group instruction with other parents who have children with
communication-language delays. The sessions that are marked with an asterisk
(*) will be scheduled for you and your child to interact together in the
afternoon on selected Tuesdays, for approximately 30 minutes, after his/her regular day program. These sessions will
be videotaped so that we may review the activities.
