The Global Foundation For Children With Hearing Loss visited Dalat, Danang, and Saigon in January, 2011, to mentor teachers of the deaf and parents about how to help young children with hearing loss develop listening and spoken language.
The team also trained audiology staff and fit hearing aids on children. In support of their work, Ear Gear donated products for the children.
“It was wonderful to have the Ear Gear with us! We fit 95 hearing aids on children from low-income families and gave them the Ear Gear accessories to ensure they would be protected," said Paige Stringer, Executive Director and Founder of the Foundation.
Ear Gear will continue to support the Foundation and will be participating in the second Teacher Training Program in July 2011, as well as their next Mobile Mission Scheduled for February 2012.
