Your dreams. Their potential. Our mission.

We all dream of making a difference. With today's early identification of hearing loss and advanced technology, it is possible more now than ever, to help make a difference in the life of a child.

Because there is a shortage of highly qualified professionals working with children with hearing loss, Utah State University has developed the Listening and Spoken Language graduate training program. This unique, interdisciplinary program helps train professionals in speech-language pathology, audiology, and deaf education to work together to serve deaf/hard-of-hearing children.

This program has been designed to reduce the critical shortage of personnel trained to work in early intervention with children who are deaf and hard of hearing living in high-need areas. It is supported by a grant from the United States Department of Education: Office of Special Education and Rehabilitative Services (OSERS: CFDA84.325K).
