How to make the biggest difference for young children
with autism and their families

Join us for a More Than Words ® Certification Workshop

Working with families of children with autism is especially challenging, and there’s no quick fix or simple solution. At The Hanen Centre, we’ve committed 40 years to developing effective parent-implemented interventions that support the work of SLPs and help them make the biggest possible difference in the lives of young children and their families.

Just updated…
Our More Than Words workshop has just been updated to provide you with even more effective tools for zeroing in on the very specific needs of young children with autism and addressing those needs with evidence-based, family-centered techniques.

When you make the commitment to attend More Than Words, you take the first step towards fundamentally changing the way you provide intervention. What you learn will make a more tangible difference for families and young children than you ever could have imagined.

What you can expect from the More Than Words workshop:

  • 3 full days of practical, experiential training that gives you the skills to apply what you’ve learned the very next day
  • An assessment protocol and goal-setting framework that helps you identify exactly where to start with each new child
  • Research-based responsive interaction strategies that address the specific challenges associated with ASD
  • A framework for meeting the needs of adult learners so you can effectively teach and coach parents to extend intervention into every part of the child’s day
  • Certification to lead the evidence-based More Than Words® – The Hanen Program®for Parents of Children with Autism Spectrum Disorder
  • A set of comprehensive resources to use both in your More Than Words® programs, as well as in your one-to-one sessions with children and their families
  • 2.25 ASHA CEUs or 22.5 professional development hours

More Than Words is open to SLPs around the world, including those with no previous Hanen training.

Registration is now open! The next 4 fully paid registrants will receive $100 off the regular fee!
