General Information

Oral Education Program

The goal of the auditory program is to teach a child how to use his residual hearing so that he may have access to spoken language.The Oral Education Progam consists of lipreading and/or cued speech. Sign Language is not used at ALL in the Oral Education Program. This program mainly applies to hard of hearing and cochlear implant students.

Three Important Factors to have a Successful Oral Education Program for Your Child:

  • Early Intervention is Key
  • Good Training is a Must
  • High-Level Parental Involvement

* English is a truly difficult language to speechread.  Many words look identical upon the lips.  In order to speechread effectively the individual must have an excellent grasp of the English language.
