Parents

It Takes Two to Talk

What is it?

The It Takes Two to Talk Program is designed for parents of children ages five and under who have been identified as having a language delay.

Why?

The It Takes Two to Talk Program gives parents an opportunity to:

  • Develop an awareness about their child’s stage and style of communication and what motivates them to interact
  • Adapt daily routines and play time to facilitate a variety of interactions and turn-taking opportunities
  • Understand your child’s interests to help build your child’s confidence, thus encouraging communication
  • Complement interactions with language models adapted to your child’s level
  • Implement strategies which are backed up by extensive research on early language intervention
  • Practise and discuss experiences and strategies with other parents

How?

The training takes place in a small, personalized group setting where parents are taught practical strategies to help their children learn language in a natural, nurturing manner.

The program includes:

  • 6-8 training sessions for parents in small groups
  • A Hanen certified Speech & Language Therapist leading the programme
  • A consultation for you and your child with the Speech & Language Therapist before the program starts
  • Three individual visits for parents and their child with the Speech & Language Therapist. During these visits, parents are video-recorded whilst practising the strategies they have been taught. At the end of the visit the parents watch the recordings with the Speech & Language Therapist. The parents and the Speech & Language Therapist will review the strategies that are in place and if needed, discuss ways to further improve their implementation.

Price: $1500 for the package
