Listening and Spoken Language Intervention (LSL/AVT) focuses on natural spoken language development. No baby is too young and no hearing loss is too “mild” to begin Listening and Spoken Language Intervention.
LSL Intervention Services available:
- Early Intervention: Birth to 5-years
- Auditory-based Speech-Language Therapy using LSL strategies and techniques
- Intervention to support use of new hearing technology, such as hearing aids, cochlear implants, bone conduction hearing aids
LSL Classes: 18 months to Pre-K 4 Transition
Language-rich, nurturing and stimulating environments where children with hearing loss learn and grow socially, emotionally, and academically. Our curriculum meets Texas Infant, Toddler and Pre-kindergarten learning guidelines. Faculty-student ratio of better than one to four provides an instructional program specifically designed to fit the unique abilities and learning style of each child.
Full Inclusion Classes: 18 months to Pre-K 4 - Transition
Children are placed into age-appropriate pre-school classrooms with typical hearing peers as early as possible for opportunities to learn speech, language, social and literacy skills.
The primary focus of our week long camps is to extend instruction and continued practice of LSL strategies during the summer months.
