Listening and Spoken Language Specialists (LSLS™) are licensed speech-language pathologists, audiologists, or educators of the deaf who have become specialists in supporting children who are deaf or hard of hearing develop spoken language and literacy primarily through listening.
LSLS professionals focus on education, guidance, advocacy, family support and the rigorous application of techniques, strategies and procedures that promote optimal acquisition of spoken language through listening by newborns, infants, toddlers and children who are deaf or hard of hearing.
LSLS professionals guide and coach families to help their children develop spoken language through listening, and help them advocate for their children’s inclusion in mainstream schools. Ultimately, parents gain confidence that their children will have access to a full range of educational, social and vocational choices in life.
