THE HANEN PROGRAM
It Takes Two to Talk®
This evidence-based program empowers parents with the skills to use everyday routines as the springboard for promoting speech and language skills for children 18-months to 5 years. This program is open to any child experiencing speech and language delays.
Both programs are available to families via teletherapy!
We are excited to be able to deliver the same high quality and effective coaching for families via teletherapy. As this program requires a certified Hanen therapist, it is our mission to offer the 10-12 sessions to families throughout California, who would otherwise not be able to access the More Than Words® or It Takes Two to Talk® programs.
