Josh, aged four, was born eight weeks early, leaving him with hearing loss in both ears and visual impairment.
With a diagnosis of Auditory Neuropathy Spectrum Disorder, it is especially important that this hearing levels are regularly monitored.
In the first assessment at Auditory VerbalUK , his expressive and receptive language was equivalent to a child a year younger than him, his audiological assessment at Chear showed that he was struggling to hear the “sh” and “ss” sounds which carry so much important information for speech.
After a hearing aid adjustment and a year of auditory verbal therapy sessions at Auditory VerbalUK with clear communication goals, he is able to hold a conversation at the dinner table, tell a simple story and talk on the telephone. Chear has enabled him to get maximum access to sounds so that in his Auditory VerbalUK sessions he can use his audition skills to the best of his ability.
He loves coming to learn through ‘play’ and his mother is delighted that she can save time by visiting professionals at the same London location.
