Mentoring is recognised by the AG Bell Academy for students working towards LSLS AVT/AVEd certification.
Specialty mentoring available for professionals who are learning the practical application of Auditory-Verbal Therapy. Participants observe lessons provided by LSLS Cert AVTs and also submit their own Auditory-Verbal Therapy lessons for critique, feedback and guidance.
Professionals receiving mentoring must be working with young children who have a hearing loss and their families, using a Listening and Spoken Language (Auditory-Verbal Therapy) approach. Mentoring is a requirement of becoming certified through the AG Bell Academy.
Note: If language translation is required, this will be at the additional expense of the Mentee.
Mentoring is recommended at regular intervals during the Mentee’s learning period. Current AG Bell certification requirements are for mentoring to take place over a 3 to 5 year period, calculated from the date of the mentee’s first lesson observed by a certified LSLS professional.
Mentoring program includes:
- Observation, by Mentor, of lessons provided by Mentee
- AG Bell observation form completed by Mentor
- Feedback provided to Mentee via Skype/phone/in person
- Observation, by Mentee, of lessons provided by LSLS Cert AVT
- AG Bell observation form completed by Mentee

- Optional on-site observations with LSLS Cert AVTs.
At 9.10pm on 24 October 2013 our beautiful daughter Maia was born.
The moment of elation was short-lived as we immediately noticed her left ear was missing. I frantically looked to the medical team around me for answers but received none.
Panic set in as we waited 4 days in hospital for an ENT to explain her condition, by which point we already had all the answers from Simone, who runs the Microtia and Atresia Program at Hear and Say.
