Explanation of Cost

An Explanation of Cost

At Moore Auditory Integration Traning, Cheri itemizes the cost of intervention by the specific training program and other services. This enables her to best meet the diverse needs of her clients. When Cheri first begins working with clients, there are often gaps of time due to the length of time it takes to complete hearing evaluations.

The Moore Auditory Integration Training Approach individualizes your hearing evaluation.  Then, Cheri uses your hearing evaluation results to develop your Berard-based auditory integration training or iLs Integrated Listening program.

When there are auditory and visual concerns, Auditory-Visual Protocols provide step-by-step help connecting you with professionals, understanding test results, and working with you to develop an intervention plan.

Your Auditory Integration Training program is completed in the comfort of your home or in-office. Listening activities help children, teens, and adults look forward to their auditory training sessions.
