2017 Hanen Calendar Giveaway!

Wednesday, August 3, 2016
Can you believe it's already August? This year is flying by. I rely on my planners and calendars to keep my life in order so I am super excited about this giveaway from The Hanen Center. The Hanen center is a non-profit organization who's mission is to provide parents, caregivers, and educators the training and knowledge to help children with language, social, and literacy skills. Trying to keep school, dance practices, soccer games, and speech sessions on a schedule is hard enough. Throw in some one on one time with your child to enrich their language skills and you have a full day. The Hanen Center created a wonderful calendar with language tips and ideas that can easily be tied into your busy day! Let me show you more...

Each month has a theme that focuses on a specific skill that children need. A few examples are: following the child's lead in conversation, expanding he child's message, and building their everyday vocabulary. There is also a research based description explaining why that skill is important. 

Within each calendar month you will see tips and activity ideas that can be applied at home or in the classroom to enrich the child's language. 
As speech therapists we know the importance of taking advantage of every teachable moment. Good language skills need to be carried into the home and not just practiced during therapy sessions. Often parents think they need fancy articulation cards and expensive toys to help their child. I love how this calendar makes it so easy to tie these skills into daily life.
The Hanen Center has so kindly offered to send a calendar to two of you! This is the perfect calendar for back to school!! 
Enter below, I will announce a winner Friday! Good luck!!
