One time grant for Hearing Aids - New Project
Deaf children with profound hearing loss, more often than not, are recommended a cochlear implant. Prior to implantation, the child has to undergo training in learning to listen with whatever residual hearing she/he may have, with the help of hearing aids. This training could extend up to 6 months, sometimes longer if the parents have not been able to collect sufficient funds for the implant. AURED loans hearing aid to these children so that they do not have the additional expense of buying
Hearing aids for the bank have to be amongst the top end so that a child has every opportunity to maximize her/his hearing for two reasons.1) To determine that the child actually needs an implant. 2) To prepare a child to 'listen' prior to the implant, so that the brain learns to process sound.
Trials on each child is done with at least 2-3 different models, to ensure that the ones that maximize hearing, are selected.
Funding Duration: April 2014 to March 2015
Total Budget: Rs.240,000
Funding Requested: Rs.240,000
This process helps with the selection of hearing aids even for those children who do not require an implant.
Will help parents avoid unnecessary expense of purchasing hearing aids, which will be of no use to them, post implant.
