Sound Advice for Children
Sound Advice for deaf children, young people and their families
Too often the potential of exciting technology of cochlear implants, bone conducting hearing implants and hearing aids are not realised in everyday life.
Here at The Ear Foundation we provide a range of support for deaf children, the services we provide are:
Independent mulit-disciplinary assessments for children with a hearing loss. Our assessments are provided by our Teachers of the Deaf, Speech and Language Therapists and Educational Psychologists, who are all highly experienced in working with deaf children and are up to date with the latest technology and practice.
Our team of Speech and Language Therapists, Auditory Verbal Therapist and Teachers of the Deaf offer individual sessions. One off assessments or regular therapy, sessions are fun and interactive, they take place at a table, in the playroom or kitchen, even in the garden. We make it as "real life" as possible so you go home with the knowledge that langauge development is in everything that you do.
Our Educational Psychologist is highly experienced with deaf children and young people. She can give you time to think through the issues which you face, unpack the options and, if you wish carry out an informal observation of your child.
