General Information

Speech

Speech therapy is designed to teach a child to use the hearing provided by a hearing aid or a cochlear implant for understanding speech, and learning to talk.The child is taught to develop hearing as an active sense so that listening becomes automatic and the child seeks out sounds in life. Hearing and active listening become an integral part of communication, recreation, socialization, education and work. (This is done both in and outside of school, depending on the parents involvement)
