Auditory Verbal therapy is a highly specialist early intervention therapy programme which equips child with the tools to support the speech and language development of the children who has hearing problem.
In order for these children to listen, they require optimum technology such as hearing aids or cochlear implants. They also need the stimulation in early childhood, ideally before three years of age. Auditory Verbal therapy programme work to ensure optimum technology is provided and kids will be stimulated for listening and therefore the language skill will also be focused. As a result, children with hearing loss are better able to develop listening and spoken language skills, with the aim of giving them the same opportunities and an equal start in life as hearing children.
Here in LET’S HABILITATE through play-based sessions using the Auditory Verbal approach, the child develops a listening attitude so that paying attention to the sound around them becomes automatic. Hearing and listening become an integral part of communication, play, education and eventually work. All learning from the sessions carries over into daily life. This means that at home, parents can make everyday activities such as setting the table or reading a story into a fun listening and learning opportunity.
