How can we help?

As a first main step Cluas carry out an individual assessment specifically with a view to establishing whether a Cluas @ Home programme would be of benefit to the young person. Normally an assessment can be organized to take place within a few weeks.

How do parents arrange for a student to attend at Cluas?

Parents can simply phone or email us or complete the enquiry form below to learn more about the Cluas @ Home Programme and to speak with one of our team, so we can learn more about a student. Then, if you are happy to do so, we can arrange an assessment at Cluas.

Assessment at Cluas

After contacting Cluas you will be given an appointment for an assessment. At this appointment we will assess the young person’s Auditory Processing, listening, developmental profile and discuss personal history.

Using the information gathered at the initial assessment, an individualzed Cluas @ Home programme is designed for each young person. Following the assessment we will discuss with you the best options for you.  See further information about the Cluas @ Home programme.

What happens next?

When the programme starts, teenagers will listen to music through headphones. The properties of these recordings are being constantly modified by specialized sound equipment, which has been programmed according to the personal programme that has been designed for the teenager.

A standard Cluas programme consists of three phases:

  • An Assessment at a Cluas Centre

Briefing and hand-over of Parent’s Guide and Cluas Equipment at Cluas Centre

  • The first stage is 15 days – for 2 hours each week-day (over 3 consecutive weeks)

Review, Listening Test and hand-back of Cluas Equipment at Cluas Centre

followed by an interval of 4 weeks (with no Cluas programme)

We will discuss and agree with you the timing in your daily routine that will best suit your family for the delivery of the Cluas programme.

Progress will be monitored and formally re-assessed at the beginning and end of each stage, the results of which will be discussed with you. Frequent consultation with senior Cluas staff members will answer any questions and provide explanations and guidance throughout your programme.

At the consultation meeting at the end of stage 3, recommendations for follow-up and review and possible further stages will be made, where appropriate.
