CID SPICE for Life is an auditory learning curriculum designed to help individuals who are deaf and hard of hearing overcome real life listening challenges. SPICE for Life focuses on functional auditory development. It includes practice with auditory memory, listening in noisy settings, listening to music, localizing sounds, listening to voices, listening in conversation, listening on the telephone and more. This kit is designed to be used with children age 5 and older.
SPICE for Life contains activities for structured lessons, suggestions for practicing skills in a classroom or therapy session and pages to encourage parents to practice skills at home. SPICE for Life can be used to help children develop auditory skills even if they have low language skills. This long-awaited teaching tool was developed with the latest research, piloted in CID classrooms and developed with the aid of the multidisciplinary staff at CID. The authors are CID teachers Julia West, MS, CED, LSLS Cert AVEd and Jennifer Manley, MS, CED.
