Our mission is to teach children with hearing loss to communicate and learn through spoken language so that they may reach their full language and learning potential. We are dedicated to fostering children's growth as we work with families in a nurturing environment. When a child is identified with a hearing loss, fit with appropriate technology and provided the guidance of Listen and Talks compassionate expertise, children can...
- Enter and thrive in regular neighborhood schools from kindergarten or first grade.
- Interact and learn in regular classrooms without sign language interpreters.
- Read, write, and perform academically at a level on par with their classmates.
- Understand others and effectively share thoughts, ideas and learn through spoken and written language.
Listen and Talk achieves these remarkable results by combining proven auditory-based educational methods with the use of advanced hearing technology including: digital/programmable hearing aids, cochlear implants, personal FM systems, and sound field systems for classrooms. For optimal success, we strive to apply our teaching methods to children in infancy- as soon as they are identified with hearing loss. With the aid of technology and education, almost all children with hearing loss can now learn to listen to and use spoken language, allowing them to participate fully in a hearing world.
