It Takes Two to Talk Workbook and DVD for Parents

Our therapists work very closely with parents to encourage the carryover of newly acquired skills in therapy. One of the home programs we employ is “It Takes Two to Talk” by Hanen. The program is designed particularly to help parents boost their child’s language and uses the following principles:
            1. Learning happens naturally - Children learn language best during everyday routines and conversations with the important people in their lives
            2. Parents are their child's most important language teachers
            3. The earlier a child receives the extra help he needs, the more his language skills will improve
The guidebook and companion DVD work together to supply parents with information and strategies for improving the child’s language and communication. Videos on the DVD correspond with the chapters in the guidebook, allowing the parent to see real-life uses of the strategies listed in the book.

Here are some sample pages from the book:
