The Hanen program “More Than Words” is designed for parents with young children (five years and under) who have been diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). The program is designed to teach parents how to promote/enhance their child’s ability to interact meaningfully with others and connect with the world around them.

The goals of this program are to improve social skills, enhance the ability to interact and to improve comprehension of spoken language. The program is designed to use the parents’ knowledge about their child to assist them to understand their child, what motivates them to communicate, set realistic goals and to achieve these goals in the home environment.

The program combines current best knowledge and practice in promoting skills and abilities in children with ASD as well as the presenter’s knowledge and skills that have developed over years of experience.
