Centre in Chennai helps hearing impaired kids join regular schools
October 9, 2017
A school in Chennai called Balavidyalaya School is helping children with hearing impairments develop language skills so they can join the mainstream education system.
The help is offered totally free of cost.
The school is open to children less than three years of age and it aims to help them develop verbal language skills by making the best use of residual hearing, which is the ability to hear some sounds in spite of hearing loss.
This way the hearing loss does not come in the way of their speaking ability. They are taught to speak using hearing aids or cochlear implants that are provided by the school itself.
The school follows a special curriculum that helps prepare every child to join the mainstream education system at the earliest possible age.
