About Us

Who We Are

The Auditory-Verbal Center (AVC) was founded in 1977 in a small room above a church in Atlanta, GA. Since its humble beginnings, AVC has grown allowing us to open three locations—Atlanta, Macon, and Teletherapy. AVC is a nonprofit organization 501(c)(3), that offers truly unique services, making it one of only a few such centers in the United States offering comprehensive Auditory-Verbal therapy and a full-service Audiology & Hearing Aid Clinic.

Our Vision

To bring people who are deaf or hard of hearing into a lifetime of listening and speaking.

Our Mission

The Auditory-Verbal Center, Inc. is a premier provider of comprehensive Auditory-Verbal and Audiological Services to infants, children, adults, and their families. Through the auditory verbal approach, we teach children with mild hearing loss to profound deafness to listen and speak WITHOUT the use of sign language or lip reading.
