SPARK Communication™

Date: 21st Sep, 2017 - 22nd Sep, 2017

Training for Early Interventionists

SPARK Communication™ is an intensive 2-day Hanen training designed specifically for professionals who work with young children with language delays and their families (non-SLPs).

Participants learn research-based responsive interaction strategies — drawn from Hanen’s It Takes Two to Talk®
program and guidebook — that are known to accelerate children’s early language development. They also learn
how to coach parents to apply these strategies during everyday interactions with their child to make language learning a natural, ongoing process for the child.

What SPARK Communication Offers

Based on current research and best practice, SPARK Communication offers the framework early intervention providers need to effectively support children’s early communication development by making parents a central part of the intervention process. By taking this training, providers learn:

  1. The four early communication stages and styles, and how the various interactive roles parents play affect their child's opportunities to interact and learn

  2. The evidence-based interaction and language-building strategies that accelerate early
    communication development

  3. A coaching framework for involving and teaching parents so they play a key role in facilitating their
    child’s early communication development

  4. A concrete plan for applying the SPARK coaching framework and interaction strategies with the
    families on their caseload

  5. A set of invaluable resources to support their daily work with families (valued at $109 USD)

  6. A common language and approach to use with other members of multidisciplinary teams in order to provide consistent and cohesive service to each family.
