Hanen, More Than Words Programme for parents of children with ASD

What is it About?

More Than Words derives its theoretical basis from social interactionist perspectives, emphasising the child’s every day activities as the context for learning to communicate. In addition, More Than Words incorporates current best practice guidelines, emphasising the importance of affect, predictability, structure and use of visual supports to enhance learning in children with ASD.
