Articles from the Hanen Centre, Canada based.
This is a Canadian based web site for parents, preschool educators, and speech-language-pathologists focused on language and literacy development . They have a valuable variety of books/booklets, some of which are moderately expensive. But BEST OF ALL they offer a series of wonderful short articles on language and literacy, many of which I’ve printed for my own library of resources. I’ve listed a few below. Their web site is well worth checking out.

Not For Profit Charity
“The Hanen Centre is a not-for-profit charitable organization with a difference. We are a social entrepreneur, operating our business for a clear social purpose – to enable young children to develop the best possible language and literacy skills. Founded in 1975 by Ayala Hanen Manolson, a speech-language pathologist who saw the potential of involving parents in their child’s early language intervention, The Hanen Centre is dedicated to addressing a pressing social problem – delays in language development in young children, including children with developmental delays and autism.”
