Online rehabilitation for children experiencing loss of hearing and speech.

By Larysa Kuzmenko – Project leader


Dear Friends, despite COVID-19 quarantine, we look for ways to continue our work aimed at rehabilitation of children experiencing loss of hearing and speech.

Auditory rehabilitation is the most important stage in children’s lives after cochlear implant surgery.

Today more than 80 children are in urgent need for post-surgery rehabilitation. It is critical for children to undergo rehabilitation shortly after surgery. In order to not expose children with weakened immune system to COVID-19, we have developed an online learning platform to deliver post-surgery rehabilitation.

Qualified instructors such as speech therapist, audiologist and music therapist conduct individual learning sessions with children and their parents online. Class curriculum focuses on development of speech breathing and speech rhythm. Since early June we have already delivered training sessions for 36 children and their parents and each child completed 10 individual classes. After completion of the online course, families received training materials needed to continue training at home and online access to additional consultations with speech therapists. Online learning  allows  us to provide timely rehabilitation program to children and their families, without creating any risk to their health.


 We want to express our thanks to all project participants, our donors and the entire GlobalGiving team.

We are waiting for the end of quarantine

 

Ukraine, much like many other countries fighting the COVID-19 pandemic, has implemented strict quarantine measures. Due to this, unfortunately, during these unprecedented circumstances our organization is currently unable to carry out our project supporting rehabilitation of children with hearing disabilities. We are postponing our next rehabilitation camp program, currently scheduled for May 15th, to a later date, after the end of quarantine. We hope this day will come very soon. We want to thank GlobalGiving Team and our sponsors for your continued support and understanding.


Sincerely,

Larysa Kuzmenko
