About listening and speaking

Auditory-Verbal Therapy focuses on learning through listening and speaking. It is a parent-based therapy where the parent/s are educated to teach their child who has a hearing loss to listen and to speak. 


The Listening and Spoken Language Specialist teaches the parent/s how to set up a listening, learning environment where their child can develop spoken language through using their aided hearing. Early diagnosis and optimal amplification are essential, as access to sound during infancy and early childhood is critical to enable the auditory brain centres to fully develop.


Read why access to listening and spoken language should be the first option for children with hearing loss.
