"More than words - hanen"

About: Lanarkshire Community Services / Speech and Language Therapy

Referred by speech and language therapist.

The programme has helped at present and will continue to help with advice given throughout the course, I would highly recommend this. We now have eye contact, he can request things, plays with toys better, which has all been since attending this. Anne McDade is excellent, home visits are involved which means Anne gets to know ur child and is able to give advice directly for u. She is very helpful and nothing is too much trouble for her. It is also very helpful meeting with other parents in the area and finding out what is available out there for ur child. Excellent programme and well run.

Dear A and G

Thank you very much for your positive feedback about the Hanen programme. I am so pleased to hear about the progress you are making with your son. It has been a very successful programme as it gives parents knowledge and skills for helping their own children and also, as you say, support from other parents. I will certainly pass your feedback on to Anne and I hope that you all continue to benefit from the Hanen programme.

Kindest Regards
