SUMMIT — Bruce Naidoff, Director of Development, Summit Speech School, will speak to the Old Guard of Summit at its meeting, 10 a.m., Sept. 24. His topic will be “Helping Children with Hearing Loss to Listen and Speak.”
Naidoff will point out that, with the proper education and support, children with little or no hearing capability can learn to talk and become active participants in the hearing world. He will describe how the Summit Speech School works with children and their families to give the youngsters skills in listening, learning and communicating. School programs build on the student’s own hearing ability, supplemented by technology such as hearing aids and cochlear implants.
