Organization Description

The Thayer Lindsley Family-Centered Program provides group and individual services to young children who are deaf or hard of hearing and their families. As a family-centered program, parents/caregivers are supported to actively facilitate their child’s communication development. Parents/caregivers are supported in their exploration of various resources in order to choose the communication approaches that work best for their family.

The Thayer Lindsley program includes:
A Parent-Infant group that provides education and emotional support for families who have recently learned that their infant has a hearing loss. Parents are taught developmentally appropriate ways to encourage their child’s speech and language growth.

A toddler group that focuses on facilitating the communication skills of children 18-36 months through exploration and group play experiences.

Individual therapy sessions involve clinicians co-treating with caregivers to target development of auditory, speech and language skills.

The Parent Support group provides a supportive context for parents to discuss many sensitive topics including specific challenges they may be facing, feelings, selecting communication approaches, and school and treatment options.
