Listen and Talk is a nonprofit early development program that has been delivering life-changing results for families with children who are deaf or hard of hearing for over 20 years.
Our goal is to provide each child with the skills needed to have meaningful relationships and learn by listening to the world around them. We coach each family and work with each child so they can reason, think independently and communicate their thoughts with intelligible speech without the need for an interpreter.
Listen and Talk students become self-advocates that know how to enter social situations and problem solve with confidence.
Our Listen and Talk “graduates”:
- Enter their neighborhood school by kindergarten
- Learn and compete side-by-side with hearing peers in regular classrooms
- Converse and learn through spoken and written language
- Reach their full language and learning potential and fully integrate into the wider community
