Hanen Program for Parents
It Takes to Two to Talk®

The Hanen Program for Parents is a family-focused program for parents of young children who have communication difficulties.

It Takes Two to Talk® is based on years of research and addresses

  • the need for early intervention
  • the importance of parents’ involvement

It Takes Two to Talk® is run by Hanen certified Speech Language Pathologist Brigid Shamburg. Through activities and group discussions, parents learn to create and take advantage of everyday opportunities to help their child communicate and use language. The program is supported by the new edition of the popular parent guidebook It Takes Two To Talk®, as well as videotapes developed specifically for the program.

Who Should Attend the Program?
It Takes Two to Talk® is recommended for parents of children with communication difficulties. The child’s communication abilities may range from being non-verbal to beginning to combine words.

Parents of children with communication difficulties associated with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) are best suited to More Than Words® - The Hanen Program for Parents of Children with Autism Spectrum Disorder.

Children with significant oral motor difficulties, such as developmental apraxia of speech, may be best suited to other intervention approaches.
