LAUNCH Pad

Learning and Using New Communicative Habits

Our three-day program, led by our expert Listening and Spoken Language Specialists, assists Kindergarten and Pre-Prep children aged four to five with hearing loss to build skills that will help prepare them for school.

Through structured activities in a safe and supportive environment, the program teaches children skills to navigate the social and emotional challenges that may occur when starting school. Some of the activities include:

  • Using interactive play scenarios to teach children when communication breakdown has taken place and attempt to repair and seek clarification
  • Activity to demonstrate how we hear and then what happens when a child has a hearing loss
  • Participating in story retell children to listen, interpret and follow instructions presented individually or as a group

After completing LAUNCH Pad, participants will have a better understanding of various skills to ensure they have a positive school experience, including:

  • Communication
  • Build resilience
  • Persistence
  • Organisation
  • Getting along
  • Early literacy
  • Build confidence
  • Communication
  • Identify feelings and express emotions
  • Regulate and manage feelings and emotions in difficult situations
