Join us at a Hanen Centre More Than Words® Certification Workshop
in Hancock, MA on September 18-20, 2015

at Jiminy Peak Mountain Resort in the Berkshire hills of western Massachusetts
sponsored by Berkshire Speech & Language


Whether you are an experienced clinician or a new graduate, the More Than Words® Certification workshop will enrich the service you offer to families of children with autism spectrum disorder. This 3-day experiential, intensive workshop provides an evidence-based program and framework for involving parents in their child’s intervention, fulfilling the key criteria for effective early intervention for young children on the autism spectrum, which include: intervention must occur early in the child’s life and be intensive; must involve parents and target functional, spontaneous communication and play; must have clear goals, with a systematic way of achieving these (National Research Council, 2001).


When you take More Than Words, you get:  

· Interaction strategies that address the specific challenges faced by children with ASD (e.g. attention, joint attention, shared enjoyment and social communication)

· Guidelines for selecting appropriate communication goals for individual children with ASD

· A framework for applying the principles of adult education to help parents learn and implement strategies flexibly and across contexts.

· Hands-on training to prepare you to lead More Than Words– The Hanen Program® for Parents of Children on the Autism Spectrum

· A comprehensive set of resources to use within your More Than Words Programs, as well as in your everyday work with families (valued at $275)

· A one-year renewable Hanen membership offering ongoing opportunities to enhance your clinical skills

You can find out more about the More Than Words workshop by visiting the Hanen website at
