Challenge

Oaxaca is one of Mexicos three poorest states, where 1 in every 1,000 newborns has hearing loss, and no access to rehabilitation, therapy or teaching services for Mexican Sign Language, which leads to discrimination, marginalization and exclusion at school.

Solution

This project will enable CORAL to identify children under 6 years old with hearing loss, through implementing hearing health campaigns in rural, indigenous and peri-urban communities. CORAL will provide language therapy and sign language instruction to these children, supporting them to develop oral communication skills and sign language, while training their parents in techniques for oral language stimulation and Mexican Sign Language in order to improve the communication with their children.

Long-Term Impact

These children will be able to communicate, access school and gain opportunities to continue their studies in order to have professions and be employed as young people. They will have the possibility to live independent lives and claim respect for their right to dignified and full lives.

This project has provided additional documentation in a PDF file (projdoc.pdf).
