Step-By-Step Help

Listen to the video to learn about the process ahead as Cheri works with you.

Step 1: Schedule a FREE Consultation

Take your first step towards improvement. Share your story with Cheri. Cheri understands additional support is often needed in single parent homes and when a spouse is deployed. Cheri provides home visits helping parents complete pre-questionnaire activities and watching children while parent completes their questionnaire.

Step 2: Complete the Moore Auditory-Visual Questionnaire

The Moore Auditory-Visual Integration Training program starts with the Moore Auditory-Visual Questionnaire (MAvQ) to provide consistency increasing accuracy in meeting each client’s needs. The MAvQ was developed over time through reading research studies and working with clients of all ages. 

Step 3: Schedule a Free Phone Consultation to Review Your Moore Auditory-Visual Questionnaire Report (MAvQ Report).

Work with Cheri to develop a plan. Cheri provides assessements and signed documents enabling you to advocate for 504 school accommodations, workplace accomodations, and hearing test not normally completed during a routine exam and connects you with professionals, audiologist, and doctors.  Cheri is with you step by step.

Step 4: Comprehensive Hearing Tests & ENT Wellness Exam

Cheri determines if a home visit is needed to complete a screening assessment for Central Auditory Deficits (CAPD).    Cheri provides you with recommendation and writes a letter for the audiologist summarizing test results which is shared along with your MAvQ Report.

The information from the hearing evaluation is used to determine a person’s ability to benefit from AIT, maintain progress, and individualize their AIT program.  Some of the additional hearing tests that may be recommended are:

  • Middle ear health is evaluated
  • Ear drum movement and middle ear bone movements
  • Each frequency is tested until the client stops responding to determine the presence of a
    sensitivity peak, which is filtered during AIT using Dr. Berard’s protocols
  • Inner and outer cochlear hairs

Additional recommendations when Cheri finds visual processing concerns.

  • A comprehensive visual evaluation by a developmental or neuro-rehabilitation optometrist
    • Share outcome of visual activities and Moore Auditory-Visual Questionnaire Report

Step 5: When There are Visual Processing Difficulties

I encourage you to make an appointment with a developmental or neuro-rehabilitation optometrist.   National search links are in menu, Resource Tab

Step 6: Working Together to Develop Your Moore Auditory-Visual Training Protocol

Cheri reviews hearing test results and visual processing test results.  Your Moore Auditory-Visual Training Protocols is explained by Cheri.  If hearing test results show client is a candidate for auditory integration training, Cheri reviews cost, provides educational documents, and works with you to develop a plan.  When financial help is needed Cheri connects you with resources, like the Lion’s Club, to help with the purchase of hearing aids and/or glasses.

Cheri works with families approximately 18 months.  The first auditory training schedule last 11 to 15 days.  Some clients need a program that helps them slowly build up their listening time; I call this a Pre-AIT listening program.  Once a client is able to tolerate 30 minutes of listening the following occurs: 

  • First 5 days – twice a day for thirty minutes using new music.
  • Day 6 – some clients need a mid-point assessment to reassess the trainee’s hearing. These changes determine which program is used during the remaining listening sessions.
  • Days 7 to 11 – twice a day for thirty minutes using new music
  • 2 day Break
  • Some clients will complete additional listening for 5 days
  • 3-month may complete 15 more listening sessions
  • 6-month follow-up consist of 10 to 15 more listening sessions
  • 7 to 12 months–Cognitive Auditory Training begins
  • 12 – 18 months–Additional auditory training, timing varies

 

Implementation of Moore Auditory-Visual Integration Training Program is a Team Effort

Our MAvIT program involves Cheri Moore, ENT doctors, audiologists, and developmental optometrists or neurodevelopmental optometrists. Cheri’s desire to improve clients’ emotional response during auditory integration training resulted in the discovery of a high rate of co-existing visual processing difficulties with sound intolerance, with or without a hearing loss. Cheri collaborated with optometrists specializing in vision therapy after some clients experienced increased visual processing difficulties during auditory integration training, like chronic double vision.

Auditory-visual protocols have resulted in improved responses to auditory integration training and vision therapy. If we can contact you upon approval from the Independent Research Board, please check the box during the Moore Auditory-Visual registration process.
