Sound Advice for Children
Sound Advice for children, young people with a hearing loss and their families
Here at The Ear Foundation we provide a range of support for children with a hearing loss, the services we provide are:
Independent multi-disciplinary assessments for children with a hearing loss. Our assessments are provided by our Teacher of the Deaf, Speech and Language Therapist and Clinical Psychologist, who are all highly experienced in working with children who have a hearing loss 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 Clinical Psychologist can offer you advice on managing any behavioural issues that are occurring in the family or school environment, provide support on your child's emotional and social wellbeing and identify any cognitive or adaptive functioning difficutlies your child might be experiencing.
Our Occupational Therapist can evaluate your child's sensory processing skills, assess fine motor skills including handwriting and advise on development of independence skills.
