Access to Sound Everyday
Listen and Talk’s Audiology Team continuously works to optimize students’ access to sound. The Harry Levinson Memorial Audiology Center at Listen and Talk provides immediate expert assistance and support to our classroom students to ensure they are hearing as well as they can every school day. An on-site audiologist performs regular tests to monitor a child’s hearing levels. This information is shared regularly with families and providers.
Collaboration Leads to Success
In order to best serve our students, the dedicated audiology staff at Listen and Talk creates auditory profiles for them. These provide their teachers, therapists, families and caregivers a better understanding of how each child is perceiving speech in various listening conditions. In addition, the staff members provide technical support for caring and troubleshooting hearing aids, cochlear implants and other amplification technology. The families, teachers and therapists also have easy access to the audiology team for consultation and support.
The internet is full of information regarding hearing technology and best practices for language development. Our audiologist and providers compiled a video library to serve as a resource for families. Visit our Hearing Technology Resource page to access helpful information.
Audiology is Fun!
We optimize our sound booth for Listen and Talk children so they enjoy their testing sessions while we collect accurate data. It is important for children who are deaf and hard of hearing to learn about their hearing technology and understand it’s importance. Visits to our audiology center promotes confidence in each child.
