As a parent of a child with autism, you want nothing more than to help your child communicate.

Updated to reflect the most current view on naturalistic models of communication, this beautifully illustrated guidebook provides a step-by-step guide for parents of children with Autism Spectrum Disorder and other social communication difficulties. Presented in a user friendly format, the book’s research-based strategies show parents how to turn everyday activities with their child into opportunities for interaction and communication. Also invaluable for SLP/Ts and other professionals who provide service to children with ASD and their families.

More Than Words can help you help your child reach the following three goals:

• Improved social skills
• The ability to engage in back-and-forth interactions
• Improved understanding of language


More Than Words is a 'must have' reference for parents of children with ASD, and for professionals supporting parents. More Than Words addresses the very specific challenges posed by children with ASD, using strategies drawn from and based on the Hanen Program, an empirically validated, child-centred developmental approach to supporting children's communication development.

After I have spent hundreds of dollars on autism books and thousands of dollars on assessments, I always keep coming back to the fact that More Than Words is the best resource out there. It's easy to read, all ideas-based, and simple to do… [My doctor] said there was nothing to do but get on a waiting list and wait for an assessment… [Now I have] a book that has millions of ideas for me to do at home.
