Is iHear Effective?

For more than 10 years, iHear has earned a global reputation for producing documented results for children with hearing loss. The intersection of innovative delivery and quality LSL services has helped to provide hundreds of children with the ability to listen, speak, and achieve success in their academics.

We have struggled to meet the needs of our student who has a hearing impairment…cochlear implant. There was a period of time when we were really concerned. He was not making the gains that he needed to make to be successful in the classroom. All the traditional methods that we had tried were not successful. We were able to become a part of the iHear program and we have seen our student just make leaps and bounds.

20,000+ sessions later, SJI is proud to continue to chart the successful progress of children in the iHear program. Data from 2011 forward is available upon request. Increases in both receptive and expressive language are consistent for all ages throughout the years of administering the program.

iHear continues to climb Mt. Everest with us, enabling our daughter to acquire language that we previously thought might not be possible. They are responsive and attentive to our family styles and culture. The therapist takes the time to know our family and key district players, adapting and maximizing potential whenever and wherever possible. I feel the program is our third leg to stand on. Our iHear therapist is as invested in our child as we are.

Each year, SJI also evaluates how well the program is working for families and educators on the other end. This measure is independent of the children’s progress and helps provide program feedback for SJI. The evaluation targets how easy the IT is to navigate, if families are accessing the tools provided, and if the Therapists are responsive. We are pleased with the results of the iHear program, providing parent/teacher support as well as impacting children’s results. There are no distinctions for children’s ages as it is all adult based.
