HACSE has proudly stepped into yet another challenging endeavour in 2011 which is geared towards global dream of early identification and intervention of infants / babies / toddlers with hearing impairment. The college, which is already working in the field of teacher education, established HASHU ADVANI CENTER FOR AUDIOLOGICAL ASSESSMENT AND INTERVENTION (CAAI) which is equipped with modern audiologicalinfrastructure. CAAI works towards early childhood hearing screening,hearing assessment and intervention of the children with hearing impairment (CWHI).
“Earlier the better” is a well-accepted principle in rehabilitation of CWHI. CWHI can develop speech and language skills at par with their normal hearing counterparts, provided they are identified and intervened very early; that is within first three months after the birth. Students who are hearing impaired vary widely in their communication skills. Among the conditions that affect the development of communication skills of persons with hearing impairments are the nature and degree of hearing loss, benefit derived from amplification, family environment etc. However, the most important factor being the age of identification and intervention.
CAAI, a center of NGO in Chembur aims at identifying and intervening Children with hearing impairment (CWHI) very early, in order to give them opportunity to acquire language, speech, and education in mainstream schools and be a productive part of an inclusive society.
