Who doesn’t love free rehabilitation resources? If you’re an audiologist, speech-language pathologist, or any other rehabilitation specialist that works with children with hearing loss, our new rehabilitation resources are made for you.
We’ve created a series of themed lesson kits to support rehabilitation sessions with young children—and the first lesson kit is ready for download. We’ll be sharing a new themed lesson kit every month, and they’ll always be free to use and share.
Each lesson kit is themed (home, animals, etc.) and has multiple activities that can be used over several sessions with each child. And every lesson kit has three levels, so that you can tailor it to the abilities of each child.
