We are the blessed parents of a three years old boy who had delays in his language and communication skills. Things took a standstill in 2020, it was a total lockdown in our city, and our child had to stop the speech therapy session and he was also deprived from the simulation he was getting at the nursery. We were in a very difficult stage of our lives, unable to support our child, when we reached out to Kyra for support, and she introduced us to the “It Takes Two to Talk”, a program developed by Hanen for parents like us. The training sessions were online, so we were able to continuously attend, it helped us to practice on strategies helping our child develop his language skills naturally throughout our normal day with him. Through this program Kyra helped us understand our child’s stage and style of communication, adjust every day routine to introduce more language, so playing eating singing became another opportunity for us to give our child a better chance in taking turns and encourage him to communicate and use more language.
Kyra’s support to us was exceptional, extended way beyond the program, her guidance was crucial for our child’s development and for our family.
