Is Auditory-Verbal Therapy Right For My Child?

listenfoundation1Professor Karl White is a psychologist at Utah State University, and is nationally and internationally recognized as one of the world’s leading authorities on early identification and treatment of hearing loss.
Professor White was recently invited to give a talk for TEDx. It proved to be a wonderfully concise, precise and uncontroversial summary of how far we have come in the last 30 years in out ability to identify deafness in children while still in their birth hospital, in the strides made in technology for the deaf, and in early education for deaf children. The talk contains footage of Helen Keller, as well as video clips from the past and present of deaf children communicating.

Please take about 15 minutes to review this talk - it really sums up what programs such as USU’s and Listen’s are all about. It is so uplifting, you may find yourself shedding a tear!

The Principles of Auditory-Verbal Practice

1. Working toward the earliest possible identification of hearing loss in infants and young children, ideally in the newborn nursery.  Conducting an aggressive program of audiologic management.

2. Seeking the best available sources of medical treatment and technological amplification of sound for the child who is deaf or hard of hearing as early as possible.

3. Helping the child understand the meaning of any sounds heard, including spoken language, and teaching the child's parents how to make sound meaningful to the child all day long.
