Mission of the Auditory-Verbal approach
help children who are deaf or hard of hearing to learn to use their listening potential to communicate through spoken language
focus of the Auditory Verbal approach which leads to the natural development of speech and language

Auditory verbal practice supports the right of children with all degrees of hearing impairment to develop the ability to listen and communicate using spoken language
the AV approach embraces the view that children learn language most easily when actively engaged in relaxed, meaningful interaction with supportive parents and caregivers
