Immensely enjoyed the conversation, memories and a delicious dinner at one of my Auditory Verbal family's home last night. He began AVT as an infant and today at 17 loves tennis, is planning for college and describes himself as an altruist who seeks to become an entrepreneur.
"There is nothing impossible to him who will try."
is one of his favorite quotes by Alexander the Great.
During the month of February, I along with Hearing First have a campaign to extend awareness of Listening and Spoken Language (Auditory-Verbal therapy) to a broader audience. We’re currently gathering stories from families and professionals.
I invite you to share a personal story by writing a SHORT message and posting it on Facebook or Twitter using the hashtags- #LiveLoveLSL #HearSayLW
By posting a quick message, you may impact those who have never even heard of LSL. Your story can power the potential of a family and their child who is deaf or hard of hearing. When presented with complete information about communication options more than 90% of parents choose a spoken language outcome for their child. Yet, LSL claims roughly 1% share of the voice online.
Together let’s redefine what’s possible in the lives of children who are deaf or hard of hearing.
Carolyn Wagner led a flash mob song and dance at Hinsdale High School last weekend. Her listening and spoken language therapy is really paying off as you can see from her beaming face. Carolyn if full of school spirit!
