For children with hearing loss whose parents have chosen the spoken language option, preparing the child for life in a mainstream education setting and supporting their full participation in their home and social community is an ongoing process. Nancy offers parent training and works with school districts to prepare for the successful integration of students with hearing loss into their home schools. Mentoring professionals and consulting with school districts and agencies is a big part of Nancy’s private practice, Speech Partners, Inc.

Children with speech and language delays and disorders, auditory processing issues and social language difficulties work with Nancy to develop their receptive and expressive language skills, expand vocabulary and critical thinking skills, improve the intelligibility of spontaneous speech and to acquire strategies for processing and comprehending verbal language with greater efficiency.

Parents are an integral part of the therapy process as they are supported in creating listening and language based environments in their home and within their child’s daily routines. Nancy works to establish and maintain partnerships with the audiologists, educators and service providers who also work with her clients.

Research shows that children with hearing loss can obtain the same language comprehension and voice quality as their typically hearing peers and can be successfully mainstreamed into their local schools. That success is built on a foundation which includes early detection of hearing loss, aggressive audiological management, the use of hearing aids or cochlear implants and Auditory- Verbal Therapy.

For school districts, agencies and organizations, Nancy is a resource for professional development, in-service training, independent evaluations and mentoring. The task of providing an appropriate program for a child with hearing loss in a regular education setting can be daunting. Nancy has worked with districts to become well prepared to offer the accommodations, intervention, support and programs that are appropriate for the child or children attending the local schools. Her ongoing work with schools that serve children with hearing loss has included curriculum development and work with staff to find or devise materials to meet the needs of the children they teach.

Families are a vital component to the Auditory-Verbal Approach. The therapy sessions are organized to provide parents with the information needed to prepare for what is needed now and what is next for their child. The parents gather information that allows them to become advocates for their child in the home, school and community. Helping families to become familiar with the nuances of hearing loss as well as the procedures associated with making educational decisions is the advocacy portion of Speech Partners that Nancy enjoys.

Family members, spouses and friends can be included in the therapy process to support an adult with integrating new and developing skills into the important home, work and social environments.
