Specialist Deaf and Hearing Support Speech and Language Therapists (SLTs) work with children from 6 months old who have a severe-profound hearing loss in both ears. This is also known as ‘bilateral sensori-neural severe-profound hearing loss’.
SLTs in the community have additional training to work with children who have a mild-moderate hearing loss.
We work regularly with Teachers of the Deaf, Nottingham Auditory Implant programme and Audiology.
We see children at home, school / nursery or via teletherapy.
We also see children at the two schools in Nottingham which have a deaf focus provision:
If you have a Teacher of the Deaf they will also work closely with the school.
