Listen to Learn is a private specialist education, training and assessment consultancy, which focuses on helping children become better listeners and better learners. We work in partnership with hospital consultants (usually ENT or Audiological Physicians), teachers, educational psychologists and speech & language therapists as required. Referrals come from parents and professionals.
Listen to Learn is led by Pauline Grant, an Independent Teacher of the Deaf. She holds the mandatory post graduate qualification in deaf education and audiology, which enables her to work with deaf and hearing impared children and young adults from 0- 25 years.
Pauline also has additional expertise in helping children who have normal hearing, but poor listening skills, often known as APD (Auditory Processing Disorder). She is the current Chair of the British Society of Audiology APD Special Interest Group
Pauline offers the following services:
Hearing loss is now diagnosed shortly after birth via the National Newborn Hearing Screening Programme. Learning that your baby has a hearing loss is a stressful, confusing and worrying time for parents – who are faced with a sea of options for communication, aiding and cochlear implants. Pauline can provide clarity, advice and support to families, carers and nurseries to make sure the baby or toddler has the best possible early start. At school age, she advises on the educational management of children with hearing losses ranging from mild to profound, including those with cochlear implants. Pauline will also support older deaf or partiality hearing students as they prepare for college or university.
Pauline is often invited to speak at national and international conferences and also offers a range of training packages for parents and professionals. She is also a Certified Provider of the Listening Program (TLP)
The BSA APD SIG held a hugely successful Family and Professionals Information Day in London on March 14th 2015. 120 attended and a Parent Support Network will shortly be launched!
