Bringing hope to hearing loss.
The Thayer Lindsley Family-Centered Program, as part of the Robbins Center at Emerson College, offers a family-centered approach to services for young children who are deaf or hard of hearing and their families. Communication-focused services are provided at this crucial stage in speech and language development. This involves working directly with the children as well as partnering with their families as they engage in the unique challenges of raising a child who is deaf or hard of hearing. Graduate student clinicians, with the support of a speech-language pathologist and early childhood educator, provide models for parents and assists families in creating optimal language-learning environments at home. Parents are given support and information about their children's specific needs, the goals of intervention, and methods for obtaining additional therapeutic and educational services.
A portion of the proceeds from the Walk 4 Hearing will be donated to the Thayer Lindsley Program and will be used to buy materials to represent our diverse client population.
