We are the only cochlear implant centre in the province, as well as the only centre offering Auditory-Verbal Therapy to preschool and school-age children. Our team of Listening and Spoken Language Specialists (LSLS) and Audiologists work together with families and other professionals who may be involved. We support families in understanding their child’s hearing loss and hearing devices, and assess and monitor hearing aids, cochlear implants, and bone-anchored hearing aids. Auditory-Verbal Therapy is a personalized, family-centred therapy where parents/caregivers learn to be their child’s primary language model. We work closely with families to help them achieve their desired outcome of listening and spoken language and education in regular schools. We provide support at our clinic, in the family’s home, in a child’s daycare, preschool and educational environment. We also connect through a support group (VOICE) and provide advocacy resources.

Canadian National Institute for the Blind
To be the leader in promoting vision health and enhancing independence for people with vision loss.
CNIB has occupational therapists that specialize in providing support to blind and partially sighted children and their families during the formative years of birth to age six.
The CNIB Early Intervention Program helps blind or partially sighted children find a new path. A child’s first six years of life are a time of exploration and learning. For sighted children, as much as 85 per cent of this learning is acquired through vision. Infants who are born blind or children who experience vision loss at an early age are not able to process information in the same way as others. With early intervention, these children can find a new path and grow to reach their full potential. CNIB is here to help.
Manitoba Education and Advanced Learning is committed to providing all students with appropriate educational programming that fosters student participation in both the academic and social life of the school. Information, resources and a variety of supports are available to all Manitoba schools through the Program and Student Services Branch.
