DISH Development Center is designed specifically for children with hearing loss and language delays and is focused on appropriate instruction with spoken language at its core. Since language is crucial to the development of children from birth to 5 years old, early intervention strategies are key. Our teachers are trained in listening and spoken language principles, tactile and kinesthetic centers, and milestone development in children with hearing loss and communication difficulties.
Our teachers work directly with our pediatric speech therapists, occupational therapist, and audiologist to help determine proper treatment for each child. Our Listening & Spoken Language Program Coordinator works with each child to determine specific education needs, and helps our teachers implement strategies for support in the classroom and at home. We also provide each child with hearing loss Auditory Verbal Therapy (AVT), and work directly with families to teach appropriate communication skills at home, advocacy development in parents, and educational counseling once the child is ready for a school age program.
Our development center utilizes this collaborative approach because learning happens best through repetition across multiple settings. With this team of our teachers, SLPs, OTs, audiologists, diagnosticians and families working together, we believe every child is capable of reaching age-appropriate skill levels as they enter into their school-age programs.
