Welcome to the Listening & Spoken Language Program!
- To provide a rich auditory learning environment for students who have good auditory access to speech for the purpose of the development of spoken language and learning.
- Collaborate with parents to set appropriate goals and expectations for their child.
- To prepare students for success in their local public school or for transitioning into the first grade at Alabama School for the Deaf.
We use modeling and imitation, a technique used to accelerate the acquisition of spoken language for children who are deaf. This technique provides models of good language and practices producing good language.
A ratio of no more than 3:1 is maintained for all small group instruction. Language-matched grouping is utilized for syntax, vocabulary, and conversational language. Academic-matched grouping is utilized for academic lessons.
Up-to-date hearing assistive technology is utilized throughout the school day.
"Sending our son through the Listening & Spoken Language Program was the best decision we ever made for him. This program helped develop his language and social skills tremendously and now he is doing amazing things in public school!"
