Auditory Verbal therapy programmes are developed for each individual child and are based on extensive knowledge of typical auditory, speech and language, and cognitive development. For the majority of children, it is possible to capture the child’s auditory attention and show them the power of their own voice meaning that they can learn to listen and talk. In a small proportion of children, this is not the case and in these instances, the therapist will work with the family and other local professionals to ensure that the family are given the most appropriate guidance and support.
