How your donation helped hearing impaired Fedya


Fedya first came to our club in September 2012 with his mum.  This was a difficult time for her as tried to come to terms with Fedya's hearing impairment.  In January they started to come to the club regularly and since then they have both changed.  Fedya is very curious about the world around him, and his mother helps him with everything.

As well as organised group games to encourage the children to listen, the club also uses finger painting and toys to interact with the children in more natural situations as you can see in our video.  They are encouraged to listen and to respond with signs and words if they have started to talk.  Parents who don't have any hearing problems can find it difficult to communicate with their hearing-impaired child.  These sessions help the parents as much as the children by strengthening communication between them.

It costs £13/$20 to put on a play and painting session for 15 children and their parents.  Your donation could help Fedya go to a mainstream kindergarten one day.
