Is Hanen More Than Words

right for my child?

More Than Words may be right for your child if they fit most of the below:

  • Aged around 1-5 years
  • Autism diagnosis or you’re querying autism (If you have no questions around autism for your child, then the Hanen It Takes Two to Talk program may be right for you!)
  • Non-speaking child (not using words), using some words, or using short phrases sometimes (if your child is having little conversations, then Hanen TalkAbility may be right for you!)

Is Hanen More Than Words

right for my family?

More Than Words may be right for your family if:

  • You want to learn more about how you can be the key supporter for your child’s development. You want to make the most out of everyday situations to help your child learn and connect better with others in their world
  • You have access to a good internet connection at home, and either a computer or tablet to use during Hanen sessions
  • You’re comfortable using Zoom and other online programs to share files and information
  • If English is an additional language for you: Your English language skills are enough for an intermediate level conversation

Adina Levy

Speech Therapist

I'm a speech therapist working mainly with autistic children and kids with disabilities since 2012.

I’m dedicated to helping families understand children better, and develop a deeper acceptance of your child’s interests, passions, and individual strengths.

I have a Neurodiversity-Affirming approach to my work with children and families. I believe that all brains are wonderful, different and needed. All children’s and adults’ individual strengths and passions should be celebrated and honoured.

I’m always learning and adapting my practice - I love getting feedback and I’m always working to better support kids and families, and advocate for autistic and neurodiverse kids to have a valued place in their world.

I love making information clear and helpful for busy families – strategies and activities are built into your everyday life so that ‘speech therapy practice’ is something that happens within your daily life and play.

Everything is achievable and together we can help your child develop their best communication and play skills!
