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.

4 Helping the child learn to respond and to use sound in the same way that children with normal hearing learn.

5. Using the child's parents as the most important models for learning speech and spoken communication.

6. Working to help children develop an inner auditory system so that they are aware of their own voice and will work to match what he or she says with what they hear others say.

7. Knowing how children with normal hearing develop sound awareness, listening, language, and intellect and using this knowledge to help children with hearing impairments learn new skills.

8. Observing and evaluating the child's development in all areas.  Changing the child's training program when new needs appear.

9. Helping children who are deaf or hard of hearing participate educationally and socially with children who have normal hearing by supporting them in regular education classes.

Developed by the Auditory-Verbal International organization based on the work of Pollack, 1970 & 1985.
