AUDITORY VERBAL THERAPY

Your child with hearing loss can learn to listen and talk.  
Auditory Verbal Therapy AVT

Kids ages birth to six years!

 

Children who are deaf or hard-of-hearing can learn to listen and speak well.  Auditory Verbal Therapy (AVT) is a family-centered approach that guides parents in unlocking the potential and possibilities within their child.

Hearing aids or cochlear implants, combined with AVT can be life changing!  Sound Speech & Hearing will work with your family to help you achieve your goals for your child.

We meet weekly through Telehealth (or in person if local). Throughout the course of therapy, we continually evaluate the progress of both child and parent(s), and make adjustments in our approach as necessary. Therapy is fun and engaging and sets you on a path to sharpen skills throughout the week.  

Parents play an equal role during the sessions.  Over time, they become experts in the field of listening and spoken language! Each session parents are educated on a variety of practical strategies and techniques they can integrate into daily family life.

AVT is designed for children from birth to six years old to guide caregivers and parents in helping your child develop spoken language through listening, using everyday natural and meaningful communication. In the case that AVT is not the right fit for your child and family, we'll explore other communication approaches that may be more appropriate.

Let's talk about:

  • Your long-term goals for your child

  • Your vision for your child and your family

  • All of the communication options

Sound Speech & Hearing will follow children of all ages for evaluations, consultation and periodic check-ins. ​
