    Default Hanen Talkability?

    Hi,

    Has any one done this? Did you find it useful? The people from Building Blocks have suggested it for us. It looks quite good but it is quite expensive and I just wanted to get other people's thoughts on it.

    I haven't done Talkability, but I did do the Hanen program, It Takes Two to Talk. It was fantastic and I absolutely loved it, everyone in our course made progress with their child's talking too!

    That's encouraging. Thanks for replying. And you found it made a difference to your child? J is verbal and can talk in sentences but he only communicates to say what he wants - it's very hard to have a conversation with him. Do you think it will help him?

    I strongly recommend Hanen for children with reduced communication, it really changes the way you interact with each other and kids make a lot of progress

    So I have done the orientation and the first two sessions. So far I think it's very good and I can see J's communication improving as we use the techniques. The first session was about helping kids to read non-verbal cues and the second was about helping kids maintain a conversation. If any one would like to know any more about it please ask.
