The model features home programing in four basic areas: the home hearing aid program (nine lessons which facilitate the proper fit and acceptance of amplification by the child), home communication program (ways to help parents develop essential communication skills and select an optimum language method), home auditory program (ways to promote use of residual hearing), and home language stimulation program. Information for parent advisors address the first home visits, psycho-emotional support for families, and home visit planning, delivery, and reporting. Home visit programs are examined in terms of lesson plans and sample activities for the subject areas of: hearing aids, home communication, home auditory programs, and home language stimulation programs (aural-oral and total communication).
