“From the beginning Lauren’s mom and dad whole-heartedly embraced the techniques they learned during Listening and Spoken Language therapy sessions. They used opportunities in everyday life to help Lauren develop spoken communication which lead to her reading and writing above her grade level. Lauren responded with joy and creativity, since from her perspective as a young child, she was coming to therapy to play.” Nancy Caleffe-Schenck, M.Ed., CCC-A, LSLS Cert AVT

Playground Fun - Lauren and Kimberly

Learning to listen and talk is a family affair. In this video Lauren and her friend, Kimberly, play with toys during a Listening and Spoken Language therapy session. Listen to the verbal interactions filled with comments, expansion of vocabulary, questions and answers, story-telling and pretend play.


Kitchen Capers - Lauren and Parents

Notice how Lauren’s parents use everyday kitchen activities in playful ways while still focusing on the therapy goals. Lauren learns that sound has meaning by turning to the sound of the telephone ringing. She understands and says useful words such as, hot, cup, more. Singing and dancing are seamlessly incorporated into her activities. And everyone is having fun!

Listening and Spoken Language 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.
