Listening and Spoken Language….

Listening and Spoken Language/ Auditory Verbal Therapy

Professionals who are certified in supporting families and children to develop spoken language are known as Listening and Spoken Language Specialists (LSLS™). They work in a variety of settings: home-based intervention, private therapy practices, clinical centers, cochlear implant centers, as well as in public and private schools. LSLS guide and coach families in interactive activities aimed at building auditory skills and developing spoken language. The parents become the primary facilitators of their child’s language development.

LSLS are designated as either:

Therapists – LSLS Certified Auditory-Verbal Therapists (LSLS Cert. AVT.) or

Educators – LSLS Certified Auditory-Verbal Educators (LSLS Cert. AVEd)
