It Takes Two to Talk (A Hanen Program)

Program Description

The It Takes Two to Talk Program is designed specifically for parents of young children who have been identified as having a language delay. In a small, personalized group setting, parents learn practical strategies to help their children learn language naturally throughout their day together. The It Takes Two to Talk Program teaches you, step-by-step, how to become your child’s most important language teacher. The program shows you how to:
  • Recognize your child’s stage and style of communication so that you know which steps to take next.
  • Identify what motivates your child to interact with you so you’ll know how to get conversations started.
  • Adjust everyday routines to help your child take turns and keep interactions going. Follow your child’s lead to build his confidence and encourage him to communicate.
  • Add language to interactions with your child to help him understand language and then use it when he is ready.
  • Tweak the way you play and read books with your child to help him learn language.
  • Change the way you speak to your child so that he’ll understand and learn new words.
  • Program components:

  • 6-8 training sessions for parents in small, personalized groups (6-8 sessions)
  • A pre-program consultation for you and your child with the speech-language pathologist (2 sessions)
  • Three individual visits for you and your child with the speech-language pathologist in which you are videotaped while practicing strategies to help your child achieve specific communication goals (3 individual sessions)
