Audiology
 

Our in house Audiologist is here to provide ongoing auditory support so that your child never misses a beat! Services are available from September through June, Monday through Thursday, from 9:00AM to 4:00PM.

Optimal access to sound is paramount for the development of listening and spoken language and for classroom learning. Whether a child requires a hearing assessment, technical support for their listening devices or acoustic modifications in their learning environment, our onsite audiologist is here to provide immediate expert assistance and support to our students to ensure that they hear the best they can at all times.

We provide services to children from birth through to Grade 12 who are enrolled in our First Words, Centre-based or Itinerant Service programs. We work closely with students, families, teachers, therapists and independent schools, providing education, consultation and support for student’s auditory and listening needs, personal and classroom hearing technology, and mainstreaming preparation.

We also provide services to adults on a need basis. We are a clinical practicum setting for graduate students from the University of British Columbia
