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
learningallows us to provide timely rehabilitation program to
children and their families, without creating any risk to their health.
