How we help Families Other services Listen and Talk as One Through our Listen and Talk as One (LATAO) service, Auditory Verbal (AV) therapists work with paediatric audiology specialists, Chear, to assess your child's hearing and provide guidance on a range of assistive listening technologies, including hearing and radio aids. LATAO appointments provide parents with a comprehensive insight into their child’s hearing and communication abilities. These appointments are an opportunity for parents to acquire strategies aimed at maximising their child’s listening and spoken language development. Children can also benefit from verified hearing aid fitting during LATAO appointments. Find out more information about the benefits of LATAO appointments by head to the Listen and Talk as One website or contact our Family Support officer at Beth.Cardwell@avuk.org. This initiative is supported by Phonak.
