Lauren

“From the beginning Lauren’s mom and dad whole-heartedly embraced the techniques they learned during Auditory-Verbal 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

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.
