What is a Listening & Spoken Language Therapist?

When your child with hearing loss attends The Shepherd Centre they’ll meet with a Listening & Spoken Language Therapist, otherwise known as a LSL for short!

But what is a Listening & Spoken Language Therapist?

Our Listening & Spoken Language therapists are speech pathologists that have undertaken additional study, training and accreditation in the areas of  developing listening skills and spoken language skills, with particular attention to paediatric hearing loss. 

Each therapist comes armed with the skills and experience in supporting your child through their hearing journey.
