Early Intervention Services
READS partners with Early Intervention Agencies throughout the southeast region to provide services for children with hearing loss from birth to age 3. Intervention may consist of speech/language therapy; American Sign Language acquisition; Cochlear Implantation follow-up and support; education on hearing aid care; language and learning development; and the development of communication skills tailored to the child and family. Many services are provided in the families' home.
READS also provides a parent support group onsite in Middleborough and offers a small group intervention for toddlers in our newly developed EI room.
READS coordinates with early intervention agencies to maximize each childs potential and to assist the family in developing communication skills.
The staff members of the Deaf and Hard of Hearing Program who provide services for Early Intervention may include speech pathologists, developmental specialists, teachers of the Deaf, and counselors.
