Auditory verbal therapy
Helping kids live with hearing loss.
Auditory Verbal Therapy (AVT) is a hearing loss treatment for children typically used in conjunction with a hearing aid.
The goal of AVT is for the child to learn how to interact seamlessly in the hearing world by practicing speech and language comprehension skills. We teach children that hearing is an active sense—this way, listening becomes an automatic response when socializing at home or at school.
