John Tracy Clinic

 Three international summer sessions

 All are open to families from U.S. and across the world.  Please share this information with families looking for opportunities to learn. The focus is on guiding parents to understand and use auditory verbal strategies for their young child who benefits from any listening device.  The families also learn so much from one another!

The NEW Parent Toddler Discovery Session, July 5-12 offered in both English and Spanish serves parents with children age 18-35 months.  Intensive parent coaching, adult education classes and support groups are designed to help parents discover how to be their toddler's first conversational partners, encourage language development and prepare their child for inclusive preschool settings.

The International Preschool Sessions, June 18-30 in Spanish and July 16-28 in English serve parents with children ages 3 through 5.  Parents participate in the preschool, attend comprehensive workshops and engage in support groups.  Families are guided to strengthen their skills for promoting their child's listening, language and speech progress to be ready for school with hearing peers.  You may contact This email address is being protected from spambots.
