We are excited to be able to offer registration for the More Than Words Program, via teletherapy, this summer. This program provides parents of children ages 5 years and under with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) or social communication difficulties with practical tools to help their children communicate. Steeped in the understanding that caregivers play a pivotal role their child’s speech and language intervention, the More Than Words parent program enables parents to better understand their child’s communication needs and how to make the most of everyday interactions and routines.
Within this program caregivers will learn:
- How their child communicates right now and the next steps to take

- What motivates their child to communicate
- How to turn everyday activities into opportunities for learning to communicate
- How to help their child understand what they are saying
- How to develop their child’s play skills
- How to help their child make friends
The program takes place over 13 weeks, includes a pre-program consultation, eight two and a half hour sessions of small group instruction, and 3 individual parent sessions in which the therapists discuss goals and watch recordings of them interacting with their child to ‘see’ what they can do to help their child.
The program will be led by Eric Ross CCC-SLP, an associate of CSLP. Eric currently works in Early Intervention with the state of IL, and is a certified Hanen More Than Words instructor.
