Many parents ask the Sound Advice team, “what is AVT”? In short, Auditory-Verbal Therapy is a parent-led approach that teaches deaf children to listen and talk by using their residual hearing with consistent wearing of digital hearing-devices.
Knowing that almost all deaf babies and children have usable hearing, AVT optimises their latent listening skills, which leads into talking (in most cases). This video explains more about AVT, which actually is not a new approach.
Families Explain Auditory-Verbal Therapy:
With today’s digital hearing-devices and early detection, babies and children have the best-yet access to sound, particularly if their parents, carers and teachers provide a spoken-language-rich setting with a wide range of words.
As this preschool example shows, hearing children gain in a language-rich environment. Proof that inclusive education brings universal benefits.
