More Than Words®, The Hanen Program® for Parents of Children with Autism Spectrum Disorder

A family-focused program that gives parents of children as old as 5 years practical tools to use in everyday activities. Parents learn to help their children with Autism Spectrum Disorder or social communication difficulties connect and communicate with the world.

As a parent, you know how challenging it can be for your child with Autism Spectrum Disorder to interact meaningfully with others and connect with the world around him.

Attending More Than Words™, parents will learn strategies to achieve the following four goals:

1. Engagement in frequent enjoyable two-way interaction
2. More mature and conventional communication
3. Learn to communicate for different purposes and with different people
4. Improved understanding of language

SPLASH Therapy was designed by Excel Speech Therapy Center to help children develop communication skills in a different and exciting setting. A child who participates in this 9-week program works one-on-one with a speech-language pathologist to target individualized speech, language, and social goals. Research has shown that children with sensory integration deficits and/or children with Autism Spectrum Disorders benefit from learning environments that support their sensory needs. Being in the water provides stimulation and input, creating an effective learning environment for facilitating language.
