This resource will help you to support students on your caseload with hearing loss that utilize a cochlear implant and/or hearing aid. It clearly and concisely provides information on listening and spoken language (LSL) strategies for both parents and professionals.

This resource contains 17 one-page handouts for different auditory verbal therapy (AVT) strategies. Ssome are general language strategies and some are more specific to children with hearing loss. These handouts are designed to further the knowledge in this area for professionals, as well as to provide to parents and teachers! Each handout contains an overview of the strategy, more detailed explanation of how to use the strategy, an example, and a place to jot down some notes. The handouts are written without jargon, so that people outside of the profession of speech pathology and/or audiology are able to understand them.

Also included is a checklist of all the strategies. This is useful to have for each student/client, so you can keep track of which strategies you've taught to parents and caregivers.

With this resource, you'll feel more confident in working with your own children or the students on your caseload with hearing loss, because you'll have effective ideas on how to help them make progress!

The following strategies are included:

Acoustic Highlighting (2 page handout), Auditory Attention, Auditory Bombardment, Auditory Closure, Auditory Feedback Loop, Auditory First, Auditory Sandwich, Check for Understanding, Expectant Look, Field of Choices, Incidental Learning, Language-Rich Environment, Limit Questions, Parentese, Positioning, Sabotage, and Wait Time.
