Hanen programs are evidence-based and world-renowned parent-training programs designed to teach parents how to implement speech and language therapy into their everyday activities with their child.
Research has shown that Hanen programs are effective towards improving both children’s speech and language abilities, as well as parents’ skills.
The Hanen Centre has devised different programs to target specific areas of need. Hanen programs involve a parental commitment of attending group training workshops for three or more months as well as individual sessions for you and your child at certain stages.
