Meet the Challenges of State-wide Leadership

Partner with The Hanen Centre to enhance the support you offer to your members

As a leader of your state association, you know that offering value to your members is key to meeting your social and fiscal bottom lines. Members look to you to provide an array of benefits that are of value to them as clinicians and professionals. One of the key benefits state associations offer is professional development that addresses the needs and interest of members, improves their clinical skills and raises professional quality and reputation.

The Hanen Centre specialises in providing professional development to speech-language pathologists in the area of parent-implemented early language intervention, including best practice in parent coaching. SLPs who work with young children and their families often experience challenges in supporting, engaging and coaching parents of young children with language delays and disorders. While we know what constitutes best practice and efficacy in parent coaching and training in early language intervention, research shows that providers do not consistently adhere to effective coaching principles and practices and have expressed the need for more training in caregiver coaching strategies. The Hanen Centre’s commitment is to provide SLPs with training and resources so they can effectively engage parents in their child’s early language intervention using an evidence-based framework.

If you’re interested in enhancing the professional development you offer your SLP members, we invite you to consider a partnership with us!

Hanen Online Workshops for Speech-language Pathologists

Hanen workshops are founded on the philosophy that early language intervention is most effective when parents are respected and empowered as consumers and as collaborating team members. These online workshops have a limited number of participants and are highly interactive to facilitate participants’ learning. They are designed to equip SLPs with the skills to become effective adult educators and coaches so they can fully engage and collaborate with parents in making their child’s early language intervention a natural, ongoing process.
