Product Description

This resource includes what you need to know to get started with a young child with hearing loss who is utilizing hearing technology such as cochlear implants or hearing aids with the goal of learning to listen and talk. The resource will help you answer the following questions about the Learning to Listen Sounds:

What are they?

Why are they important for children with hearing loss?

How do you use them in therapy?

The resource includes:

● A detailed explanation of the hierarchy for using the Learning to Listen Sounds

● Activity ideas for each of the 4 steps in the hierarchy using common therapy toys (see note below)

● A printable tracking sheet for your students/clients

● 40 Learning to Listen Sounds picture cards

● 2 other printable activities that can be made into materials for therapy or sent home for practice.

No toys are required for this resource, as there's several printable activities included. However, also listed are several ways to utilize common therapy toys to target language and listening for kids with hearing loss, such as:


●baby dolls

●animal/vehicle figurines (i.e. wind-up toys, "Little People" animals, or small wooden or plastic cars/trucks/trains)

●other toys such as a yo-yo or top

Even just 5-10 items from above would be sufficient for many activities! Activity ideas are provided for other random things such as a sensory bin, small paper cups, a box or other non see-through container, and animal magnets/metal cookie sheet. Again, these are just some ideas and not required to get benefit from this resource.
