On Tuesday 5th June 2018, at the Houses of Parliament, Auditory Verbal UK launched new research which demonstrated the effectiveness of Auditory Verbal therapy. The paper had a particular focus on deaf children with additional needs. Of the children who had needs in addition to their hearing loss, half achieved age-appropriate language. On average, the children with, and those without additional needs, both doubled their rate of language development.
In 2016 our research coordinator Sarah Hogan DPhil, CS (Audiology), PGDip Auditory Verbal Therapy, LSLS Cert. AVT® presented findings from a ten year audit of outcomes for pre-school children in the UK. She discussed findings that showed approximately 80% of the children who were on the Auditory Verbal programme at Auditory Verbal UK for two years or more graduated with age appropriate language (AAL) by five years of age. This poster summaries the research.
