Speech and listening skills are always a focus at NWSDHH. Students have daily individual speech instruction. Everyone is expected to use their best speech in all communication throughout the day. Data taken daily is used to guide individual and group instruction.
We work collaboratively with school districts, parents and area professionals to obtain the best personal assistive listening devices and FM systems for each child. All students receive listening checks twice a day to make sure that their equipment is working properly. Individualized strategies encourage students to use their listening skills in every conversation or lesson. Each student participates in daily one-on-one auditory learning activities designed to assist them in learning to maximize their use of their personal amplification.
