What is More than Words?
The More Than Words Program was designed specifically for parents of children ages 5 and under on the autism spectrum. Addressing the unique needs of these children, the program provides parents with the tools, strategies and support they need to help their children reach their full communication potential.
More Than Words does this by empowering you to help your child reach the following three goals:
- Improved social skills
- The ability to engage in back-and-forth interactions
- Improved understanding of language
Can I use my Helping Children with Autism (HCWA) FaHCSIA funding?
Yes. The program is an eligible intervention by FaHCSIA and you can use your funding to attend this program as well as purchase your parent guidebook. The cost is $1500 per participant (does not include cost of parent guidebook). Each program is limited to 6 families per program as per FaHCSIA guidelines. Flourish Speech Pathology is an approved HCWA service provider.
