Speech and Hearing Impaired Children Teaching

Project Code: 
LTV 01 F

Many NGOs and Government organizations are working to support people/children with hearing loss and speech problems. The hearing loss can affect a child’s development of receptive and expressive communication skills. The language deficit causes learning problems that result in reduced academic achievement. Communication difficulties often lead to social isolation and low self-esteem. Different tools and methodologies are used by organizations to conduct formal and informal teaching and to help such children integrate into mainstream life through inclusion.

Work schedule for volunteers working in Speech and Hearing impaired children teaching project includes any of the following activities:

  • Class room teaching: Spoken and written English, Mathematics, Geography, etc.
  • Extra-curricular activities: Sports, Games, Drawing, etc.
  • Assist in Computer reporting work, Photo/video documentation
  • Impart training to children on life skills, health and personal hygiene

A creative approach to work is useful and you will have the opportunity to initiate new mini projects or activities. It is important that volunteers in this project have a flexible approach to the work and are good at Multitasking, prepared to undertake variety of tasks. If you have many ideas of teaching different kinds of activities such as games, songs, arts and crafts or sports and athletics to children, then this type of project is for you!

The Info-sheet will have more information regarding the individual projects with schedules, and activities.
