International researcher shares how deafness can be prevented in Indian children
Dr Dimity Dornan is a researcher from Australia with more than 35 years of experience. She is the founder of non-profit Hear and Say centre for the deaf children.
She has worked for over 10 years with many organisations that works for the deaf people in India.
Recently Hear and Say experts trained 60 professionals from India on ways to educate deaf children and their parents on modern hearing technology.
Dornan suggests hearing test to be done early for newborn kids. This must be followed by fitting of hearing device and cochlear implant to prevent deafness among the Indian children.
