Direct services and consultation are provided by licensed professionals trained and experienced in working with deaf and hard-of-hearing students.
Children with a cochlear implant need regular speech and listening therapy to make effective progress. The WRSD Outreach Division provides speech and listening therapy by an American Speech-Language-Hearing Association (ASHA)-certified speech pathologist to implanted children on a more consistent and long-term basis than can be provided by a school or local clinic.
Children are allowed to progress through the program at their own pace. Our experienced staff use listening programs that have been developed to help these children maximize the benefits of their implants.
To learn more about our speech and listening therapy program, please contact Kate Devlin-DeLisle, Coordinator of Speech and Listening Therapy.
