Parent Education & Support
Teachers and therapists work closely with our students and their families. Parents are often the first and best teachers of a child. At Child’s Voice, we want to empower parents with the advocacy skills and knowledge to navigate the world of special education.
Education sessions are offered through all Child’s Voice programs including:
- Curriculum night
- Parent education quarterly sessions
- Mainstream panels and phone conferences
Transition to the mainstream, local schools can be daunting for students and their families. Our strong Mainstream Support Program ensures that graduates are prepared to excel and engage with their peers.
Additional services are available including consulting and direct support/services for the student, family and home school district.
Auditory-Verbal & Speech Therapy
Auditory-Verbal Therapy (AVT) services are available to all our students from birth through 18 years old. Additional therapy is available outside of the Programs. Features of this therapy include:
- Aural rehabilitation for children with a new cochlear implant,
- Advanced listening and language skills,
- Speech production skills, and
- Speech-language evaluations.
These services are offered at both the Wood Dale and Chicago Child’s Voice locations by a certified speech-language pathologist and listening and spoken language specialist.
Social Work Services
Social services and assistance are offered to improve social and psychological function for children and their families.
