Speech, language and auditory training:
It is our belief that every hearing-impaired child should have the opportunity to acquire the necessary communication skills to succeed in a hearing world. The focus of the entire Mayfield Auditory-Oral Program is on the development of auditory-oral communication through highly specialized instruction in speech, language, and listening skills. With appropriate amplification or cochlear implants, children are taught to use residual hearing to develop natural language and speech. Each child is presented with opportunities to learn through daily routines and developmentally appropriate speech and language activities.
Special services include:
- Audiological evaluation and support
- Sound field systems in all classrooms, gym, and library. (MCHI and Millridge)
- Daily speech practice in therapy and classroom
- Training for teachers and staff who are not certified teachers of the deaf
Inclusion is an educational program where hearing-impaired children learn in a regular classroom setting with their hearing peers. All students in grades K through 5 start their day in a Millridge classroom. Students are eligible for individualized lessons through small group sessions or individual resourcing.
