Speech-Language Pathology

[ticker-B1]

Our goal is to evaluate, monitor, and provide habilitative services to children with hearing loss to enable them full access to their listening environment. When a child's hearing loss is identified, intervention should begin immediately. The earlier that intervention occurs the sooner he or she can receive auditory information vital for learning speech and language. With early access to sound through the use of appropriate and consistent amplification or other hearing technology, a child's language level can follow normal development.
