Our son was 2 years old and non-verbal when he was diagnosed with autism. We felt lost and unsure of what to do next. One thing recommended to us was to take part in the Hanen ‘More than Words’ Program which could potentially help us address his struggles to communicate.

We are so happy that we found this course and that Carolyn was the person leading us through it. Throughout the course she was patient, diligent, encouraging, thorough, understanding and kind. The course gave us structure to understand how our son was developing and the tools to develop his progress. We would have no hesitation recommending Carolyn and the ‘More than Words’ Program to any parent facing a similar situation.

As parents the programme helped us to align and agree on our communication goals. It helped us to see everyday situations as opportunities to improve communication skills. This makes parenting more fun, and we feel better that we’re helping our child. The programme really works. Carolyn is a very supportive, professional and well-organised speech therapist. She gave us great guidance along the way.
