Center for child development


Prayatna conducts family focused parent training programs led by Hanen Certified speech-language pathologists (SLPs) who have been specially trained by The Hanen Centre (Canada). We believe that Parents and other family members should be involved in their child’s treatment program so that the child will benefit holistically. This intensive Program focuses on teaching parents how to be the main facilitators to bring about more functional communication, interaction and play skills in their children. Hanen addresses the needs of both non-verbal and verbal children with a variety of speech, language and communicative disorders.
