INCLUSIVE EDUCATION FOR HEARING IMPAIRED CHILDREN
In ETI’s programme, Inclusive Education for Hearing-impaired Children, teachers learn how to support the hearing-impaired child in a mainstream school, addressing specific needs of the hearing-impaired child including academic, social, amplification and physical needs. Teachers also gain specialised knowledge about language and listening and how they form the basis for the development of literacy and academic learning. Music forms an important part of the curriculum and the necessary information is provided to any teacher who wishes to use music as a way to aid the language, listening and reading development in children.read more

The role of the audiologists in the identification, management and support of children with hearing loss has changed dramatically since the birth of the profession in 1945. With the age of identification of hearing loss rapidly diminishing, paediatric audiologists are faced with the responsibility of providing early hearing- intervention services to very young infants diagnosed with hearing loss.
