The Let’s Listen and Talk programme
Let’s Listen and Talk is an in-depth programme developed by specialists at The Elizabeth Foundation to provide information, advice and tailored guidance to parents and carers supporting young deaf children from birth to 5 years.
Please note: We are waiving all fees until further notice for the Let’s Listen and Talk programme so that families who need it at the current time can benefit from our advice, information and guidance.
Helping young deaf children learn to listen and talk
We have created Let’s Listen and Talk especially for families who want to help their baby, toddler or preschool child with hearing loss develop their listening, spoken language and communication skills.
We have developed the information and activities in Let’s Listen and Talk based on our many years of experience delivering services for young deaf children and their families.
The programme is based on techniques we use at our family centre to provide our education services for babies, toddlers and preschool children with hearing loss.
