Challenge

Fundacion Patronato in Medellin, help children with disabilities as hearing loss, and whose families are not able to pay for rehab. After a cochlear implant or a hearing aid, is fundamental to continue with language therapies. This year we have received request from 12 children who need multidisciplinary therapy with audiologists, psychologists and educators. The rehabilitation process will allow them to have an adequate inclusion in social, educative and family life.

Solution

After giving hearing aids or cochlear implant to children with hearing loss and language disorder; the project will also strengthen their comunicational skills through audiologist therapies and will provide for psychological sessions for beneficiaries and their families to have a better quality of life.Through this rehabilitation the children will achieved the health and psychosocial well-being required to go smoothly through their educational process and will achieve the needed social inclusion

Long-Term Impact

The project will beneficiate directly 12 children and indirectly will teach their families to foster an edecuated learning environment. Each child lives with parents and brothers, each family has around five members. To ensure adequate school inclusion for the 12 beneficiaries, it is necessary in this project to train teachers so they can help in the educational process. This project will help around 60 family members and 12 teachers.
