How We Help Children
Children with hearing loss often need extra support to develop their speech, language and communication skills. Our speech-language pathologist partner to provide children and their families with the right support. We focus on developing and expanding children’s speech and language skills in a natural, play-like environment, and help to develop children’s language skills in spoken Albanian/Macedonian/Serbian or respective Sign Languages (SL).
How We Help Adults
A speech-language pathologist will meet with you to determine your goals and create programs tailored to your needs. Services are provided in Albanian/Serbian/Macedonian, sign-supported languages. You can choose from several programs depending on your needs:
Albanian for New Albanians
Deaf and hard-of-hearing newcomers to Kosovo or Albania often have trouble learning Albanian in regular classes because of accessibility barriers or because they can’t hear the instructor and other students. We provide specialized support to ease the transition from your native language to Albanian. We help a range of new citizens, from professionals who want to learn how to communicate effectively in the workplace, to parents who want to talk to their children’s teachers.
Pronunciation and Voice
We can assist adults in learning how to develop their speaking skills and use their voices more effectively and safely. Using specialized techniques, we can show your speech and voice patterns, helping you improve your pronunciation and voice. Albanian Upgrading (Reading and Writing)
We help adults develop and improve their reading comprehension and increase the effectiveness of their writing. With our help, you can expand your vocabulary, improve grammar skills, and learn how to write effective business letters, e-mails, academic essays, and other correspondence.
We support adults who have received cochlear implants to learn to understand the new sounds they hear through their cochlear implants. We work with adults starting at their own level – whether it’s hearing the difference between how two words sound or talking on the phone – and build skills and strategies for effective communication. Family members are welcomed and encouraged to attend sessions to learn helpful communication strategies.
