1.Promote early diagnosis of hearing loss in newborns, infants, toddlers, and young children, followed by immediate audiologic management and Auditory-Verbal Therapy;
2.Recommend immediate assessment and use of appropriate, state-of-the-art hearing technology to obtain maximum benefits of auditory stimulation;
3.Guide and coach parents to help their child use hearing as the primary sensory modality in developing spoken language;
4.Guide and coach parents to become the primary facilitators of their child’s listening and spoken language development through active consistent participation in individualized Auditory-Verbal Therapy;
5.Guide and coach parents to create environments that support listening for the acquisition of spoken language throughout the child’s daily activities;
6.Guide and coach parents to help their child integrate listening and spoken language into all aspects of the child’s life;
7.Guide and coach parents to use natural developmental patterns of audition, speech, language, cognition, and communication;
8.Guide and coach parents to help their child self-monitor spoken language through listening;
9.Administer ongoing formal and informal diagnostic assessments to develop individualized Auditory-Verbal treatment plans, to monitor progress, and to evaluate the effectiveness of the plans for the child and family; and
