The Listen to Me! Summer Institute is an intensive one-week training program for children, families, and professionals to learn how to foster listening and spoken language development with cochlear implants.
CHILDREN participate in an auditory-oral class setting and receive daily listening and spoken language therapy sessions.
PARENTS participate in educational presentations, therapy and class observations, role-playing for implementing goals at home, and a parent support group.
SIBLINGS who have normal hearing participate in a summer camp experience designed just for them, including crafts, games, and outdoor activities.
