The Auditory-Verbal Center has spent over 40 years providing quality Auditory-Verbal Therapy and hearing healthcare services to children and adults who are deaf or hard of hearing. All of our Auditory-Verbal Therapists are ASHA-Certified Speech-Language Pathologists who specialize exclusively in teaching children with hearing loss to listen and speak. They are trained to develop the listening pathways in a child’s brain, laying the foundation for a lifetime of listening and speaking without the need for sign language or lip reading. Our specialists offer family-centered speech therapy services, consultations, and referrals through the Auditory-Verbal Program. We also provide intervention directly in Spanish with a bilingual therapist!
We have two locations, one in Atlanta, GA and a satellite location in Macon, GA, with weekly clinical meetings with all therapists. We also offer teletherapy throughout the state.
