Deaf centre helps parents of deaf kids communicate better
September 28, 2017
Vaani Deaf Children Foundation works with hearing impaired children and their families to help them communicate better.
Vaani, which opened its first centre in Assam in 2005, was started to not just highlight the problem of childhood deafness but also to include the parents of deaf children in the process of teaching them to communicate.
Children are taught basic mathematics, reading, writing and communication.
Vaani has centres in Assam, Jharkhand, Meghalaya, Mizoram, West Bengal and Karnataka and works with children aged 0 to 14 years.
The founder of the centre Brinda Crishna says that deafness is diagnosed only around the age of 6 to 7 years and until then the child is considered ill-behaved.
It is this gap that Vaani is trying to fill by involving parents.
