Early Childhood Intervention Services

Hanen Groups

  • Hanen Programs® are evidence and research based, family-centred programs that recognise that you are the person who knows your child best. As a parent, you will receive the knowledge and strategies you need to support your child with communication and language difficulties in everyday routines.

    Our Hanen certified speech pathologists and Hanen certified early childhood teachers offer programs designed for parents and early childhood educators. 

    There are programs available to support: 

    • Children with language delays
    • Children who are late talkers
    • Children with social communication difficulties or autism spectrum disorders (ASD) and language delays
    • Children who have an autism spectrum disorder who are verbal
    • Children with literacy and language learning difficulties

    A key focus of each program is to empower parents and educators to make the most of each interaction they have with their child/children to promote language learning and social communication skills.
