What faculty members have said about involving students in It Takes Two to Talk® ─ The Hanen Program® for Parents of Children with Language Delays...

“Involving students in a Hanen Program helped me achieve two important objectives: 1. Helping students gain social interaction strategies they can use when providing early intervention, and 2. Helping students gain skills they can use to empower parents (a sense of the mediator model – both what it feels like from the parent perspective and the skill sets they can use while administering this model).”

“This is the only clinical practice in our training program that truly focuses on working with families. The practicum experience has gotten good press in our program through word of mouth so that several graduate student clinicians now approach me to inquire about the possibility of their involvement in a Hanen Program. Leading the program continues to be a positive experience for me professionally and personally.”
