tVisit® Teleservices for Children of All Ages
Accessing high-quality Listening and Spoken Language (LSL) supports for children who are deaf or hard of hearing and their families can be challenging due to the nationwide shortage of teachers of the deaf (TOD) and speech-language pathologists (SLPs) who specialize in working with children with hearing loss. tVisit Teleservices can be a solution for your family or school district. Virtual services are proven to support families, children and schools.
