- It is a "curriculum" based program for toddlers and preschoolers who are deaf or hard-of-hearing
that combines play, music, story book
reading and other developmentally appropriate and fun activities that provide auditory
and language enrichment.
- The playgroup is run by students in the speech-language pathology program at UT under
direct supervision of faculty and staff, including a
certified speech-language pathologist and an audiologist who specialize in pediatric
aural (re)habilitation. Teachers of the hearing
impaired and other related professionals also serve as consultants.
- The program includes a parent education/support group as well as a school-age group. Siblings are welcome to take part in both groups. The ALE programs also sponsor conferences with nationally known speakers on an annual basis.
