The Prerequisites for the Auditory-Verbal Approach (PDF)

The auditory-verbal approach emphasizes six important steps for developing each child's maximum potential in communication:

1) Early identification of hearing loss.

2) Early fitting of appropriate amplification; i.e. hearing aids or cochlear implant.

3) Emphasis on "learning to listen." A child who is hearing impaired will not develop the ability to listen without continuous repetition and reinforcement.

4) Regular therapy sessions with certified auditory-verbal professionals.

5) Mainstreaming in education. The child who is hearing impaired attends classes with children who have normal hearing.

6) Total family participation in the learning process.
