Observing International Week of the Deaf 2018
Kiran is an energetic and enthusiastic kid. He is just like any other child his age – playful, curious and loves to learn new things! He also happens to have cerebral palsy and is hearing impaired. Hearing loss or impairment is a partial or total inability to hear. In children, hearing problems can affect the ability to learn any spoken language. This is mainly due to the fact that languages are learned mostly by hearing and reproducing the sounds that were heard in the first place.
With the aid of sign language and communication tools such as Avaz, children like Kiran can learn to communicate. Avaz lends itself seamlessly to a multi-modal approach, making it ideal to use with the signing.
Watch how confidently Kiran uses Avaz to answer the questions signed to him!
At Avaz, we are honored and humbled to enable millions of kids around the world like Kiran by being a medium for their voice.
This International Week of the Deaf, we reaffirm and rededicate ourselves to Making Every Voice Heard!
With Communication, Everyone is included!
With Avaz, Every Voice is Heard!
Leave us a comment on how people can make the best of multi-modal communication.
