Elaine Weitzman, Hanen Executive Director, talks about telepractice

We are changing the way you provide parent-implemented intervention with the launch of four Hanen Programs that can be offered via telepractice. Each of these telepractice programs – It Takes Two to Talk®, More Than Words®, TalkAbility™  and Target Word™ – has been developed and carefully piloted to ensure that it duplicates the in-person program. With so many of us working remotely to stop the spread of COVID-19, the telepractice format means that intervention is even more accessible to the families on your caseload.

Developed by Hanen’s expert SLPs, Hanen Programs offered via Telepractice maintain the best practice principles that Hanen is so well-known for, such as:

  • Integration of principles of adult-learning throughout the program
  • Parent-to-parent support
  • Evidence-based structure for parent coaching and providing video feedback

If you are certified in Learning Language and Loving It™ and are looking for online professional development opportunities for educators, learn more about the Teacher Talk™ Training Series.

Highlights about Hanen Telepractice Programs
  • SLPs can deliver the same evidence-based program in an online format
  • Hanen Programs offered via Telepractice duplicate the essential ingredients of Hanen’s in-person programs, including interactive group sessions that integrate best practices in adult education, parent-to-parent support and video feedback sessions
  • Telepractice programs make it easy for you to work with families in their home environments
  • You’re able to reach a broader audience with no travel time or space constraints (note: you must abide by any applicable licensing regulations when offering service to clients outside of your jurisdiction). All you need is an internet connection and videoconferencing software to connect with your group
  • For members with Target Word certification and a Target Word 1:1 license, the Target Word Telepractice license allows you to offer both the group and 1:1 Program via Telepractice to parents
