Spoken Language and Listening

callout-communicateSpeech 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.

Testimonials

Thank you to NWSDHH…without you and the dream of this school’s approach, our daughters, along with their graduating peers, those before them and those after, would not have excelled as they have.
Ken & Kathi T., parents of two graduates
Why are you happy your child goes to NWSDHH? I am glad my daughter is here because she found a teacher that has been able to connect with her like nobody else has. She has blossomed.
