The Speech, Language and Hearing Clinic at UW-Stevens Point is proud to host the It Takes Two to Talk® program for parents of children (birth to 5 years of age) who have been identified as having a language delay. In a small, personalized group setting, parents learn practical strategies to help their children learn language naturally throughout their day together.

- Recognize child’s stage and style of communication
- Identify what motivates children to interact with parents so they’ll know how to get conversations started
- Adjust everyday routines to help children take turns and keep interactions going
- Follows children’s lead to build confidence and encourage communication
- Add language to interactions with children to help them understand language and then use it when they is ready
- Tweak the way parents play and read books with children to help them learn language
- Change the way parents speak to children so that they’ll understand and learn new words
- Eight (8) two-hour small group sessions led by a Hanen-certified speech-language pathologist
- Three (3) individual one-on-one sessions with parent(s), child and speech-language pathologist will be scheduled to provide family-specific practice of learned skills
