Thaks to following the Hanen Program with Renee we have really achieved so much within the interaction with our son. Mike (3 years) was so frustrated and angy, he was not able to express himself in any words. We asked him so often what he tried to say. Only now, since we have joined the Hanen Program, we realize its so important to ask less but follow his interest. The strategy to wait and to interpret were for me the strongest. Not only Mike’s language improved (YES he speaks now, he uses some words and is able to expres his needs) but also our relationship became so much better. Honestly this changed our world! We have a happy child who is of course still learning language step by step. But we see the steps and are able to support him!
