Listening and Spoken Language Specialists (LSLS™) are licensed speech-language pathologists who have become specialists in supporting children who are deaf or hard of hearing develop spoken language and literacy primarily through listening.
LSLS professionals guide and coach parents to help their child develop spoken language through listening, and to teach them to advocate for their child inclusion in mainstream schools. Ultimately, parents gain the confidence needed to know that their child will have access to a full range of educational, social and vocational choices in life.
“The path required to get this certification sets professionals apart in their knowledge, experience and application of skills to change outcomes for children with hearing loss.” Cynthia S. Robinson, LSLS Cert. AVEd™ – Clarke Schools for Hearing and Speech
