Auditory verbal therapy FAQs Our child has additional or complex needs. Is AVT a suitable choice? Our goal for all children who attend Auditory VerbalUK is that they should fulfil their potential as listening and speaking individuals. We recognise the unique needs of children with additional or complex needs and work together with you and your child’s multidisciplinary team to ensure that all of your child’s needs are taken into account when putting together a package of care. Priorities are identified with you and 3-month goals set. At the end of the first three months, we will review your child’s progress with you and make a plan together for how to go forward.
