Past Events:

July 8, 2pm: Parent Education…The ICAN Way

Hanen certified speech and language pathologist, Piera presents a 90-minute orientation on Hanen’s “More than Words” program. This program for parents of children with autism spectrum disorder or social communication challenges focuses on the fact that you are the most important people in your child’s life and you’ll have the longest most constant relationship with them.  MTW is not meant to replace the therapies and support you are already receiving.  Instead, MTW aims to empower you and build your competence and confidence in setting communication goals for your child and supporting his/her development.  During the program you will build on strategies you are already using during everyday activities with your child.  You’ll practice the skills in a supportive parent learning group, and show them off during home visits with a Hanen certified speech language pathologist.   For questions, contact Piera@lakesideautism.com or view the evite for the program by clicking here.
