In this episode, Michelle is joined by the Jenine Entwistle Viole, MSP, CCC-SLP, LSLS Cert. AVT, a Speech-Language Pathologist and Auditory-Verbal therapist with Pediatric Speech and Language Services in North Carolina…and if we are lucky her sidekick Dennis the Golden Doodle, honorary SLP, will join in too! Have you ever worked with a little one who had hearing loss and felt as if you were missing “something” to help them reach their functional language goals? Jenine is here to explain what an Auditory-Verbal Therapist is and how the specialized training and certification process supplies the evidence for that “something” you felt was missing. This is the perfect follow-up episode to compliment Dakota Sharpe, AuD, CCC-A in “The Journey of Cochlear Implants”, from First Bite Episode #109.
By the end of this PodCourse, participants will be able to identify and describe:
- The process for becoming an Auditory-Verbal Therapist.
- What the acronyms LSLS and AVT mean, as well as the differences between the terms.
- Steps involved in the AVT Certification and how it provides EBP to the world of Early Intervention.
