The Education, Audiology & Research Society has
been working with Deaf children for 41 years.
Our MISSION is to enable Deaf children to
communicate orally, be integrated into normal schools and
function effectively in our hearing world.
For years deaf children were pushed into a separate
world where communication was restricted to manual signs,
unintelligible words and unnatural tones. Development in
language and speech training and research advances in acoustic
technology have opened a whole new world for the deaf child.
Today at the EAR Centre, the deaf child has a lot to look
forward to: with early diagnosis of a hearing loss, high
quality digital hearing aids and modern methods of
teaching, a child can learn intelligible and effective speech.
WHAT WE DO
*Detect and manage hearing loss at the earliest age.
(Neonatal Screening )
*Guide parents to stimulate their child's residual hearing
*Use the Auditory Verbal method to develop listening
skills, language and speech.
* Audiological Evaluations of hearing loss of
even very young deaf children.
*Hearing Aid fitting by a careful process of selection
to ensure that the child is fitted with the best possible
hearing aid, most suited to his hearing loss.
*Instruct children in English, Hindi, Marathi and Gujarati.
* Integrate children into regular hearing schools, with
support from EAR's Resource professionals.
* Train children with Cochlear Implants : Pre and post
training in individualised
sessions in Audition, Language and Speech.
