Toddlers love running and posting things into boxes.  Now you can see how this simple game is used by the club for children with hearing impairment in St Petersburg.  All the children have some sensation of hearing whether enhanced by a hearing aid or sent direct to their brain via a cochlear implant.  However, they need to learn to tune into the sounds they can hear.  In the video, you'll see them playing a fun game, which makes them listen hard for their name before running to fetch a ball and put it in a box.

This game is just one of the techniques our skilled teachers use to help children with hearing impairment tune into the world of sound and communication.  It is a step along the way to learning to talk.  The parents are so grateful to you all for helping create this wonderful club, where even the youngest of children can be helped to develop.
