Professional Resources

AG Bell knows that busy professionals need easy and immediate access to tools and resources. We offer a number of activities that provide information about listening and spoken language.

The LSLS Certification


The AG Bell Academy is the global leader in Listening and Spoken Language Certification. The requirements for the Listening and Spoken Language Specialist (LSLS) Certification set universal professional standards for knowledge and practical experience providing listening and spoken language intervention for children who are deaf or hard of hearing and their families. The LSLS exam is defensible and verifiable and follows National Organization for Competency Assurance (NOCA) standards.

Our Mission

Working globally to ensure that people who are deaf and hard of hearing can hear and talk. 

We want all families to be informed and supported, professionals to be appropriately qualified to teach and help children with hearing loss, public policy leaders to effectively address the needs of people with hearing loss, and communities to be empowered to help their neighbors with hearing loss succeed.
