World Wide Hearing Day!
World Wide Hearing Foundation International (WWH) is a Montreal-based non-profit organization that provides hearing care to children in developing countries and underserved communities. WWH trains local workers to become audio-technicians, provides affordable hearing aids to people in poorer communities, screens children for hearing loss using clinically-validated mobile devices, and provides long-term follow-up and support. It designs new models of hearing care that can be used in communities where hearing health services are not present or limited. WWH's mission is to connect children to their world through hearing.
In partnership with the Montreal Fluency Centre, World Wide Hearing visited Step By Step on May 2nd, 2016. Using clinical audiometers (hearing test devices), testers are able to detect the presence of a hearing loss. The test is non-invasive and consists of listening to a series of tones, played at varying volumes and pitches, through a pair of headphones placed on a child’s ears. The results of this test, which will be provided to the parents and guardians of all participating children, can indicate whether a child has a likely hearing loss and should see a specialist for follow-up evaluation and treatment.
