Hanen

The Hanen approach teaches parents and caregivers to take a primary role in helping their children with the development of their communication skills. Hanen can be effective with language delay, autism spectrum disorder, Asperger Syndrome and language and literacy development, particularly in early childhood. Our therapists support parents in learning techniques to encourage speech and language development throughout a child’s daily routine, in and out of the home.
