Your Campus Connection
Hearing loss affects a child’s development of receptive and expressive communication skills. The language deficit causes learning problems that result in reduced academic achievement. Communication difficulties often lead to social isolation and low self-esteem. Different tools and methodologies are used by organizations to conduct formal and informal teaching and to help such children integrate into mainstream life through inclusion.
Volunteers in this project will work with speech and hearing impaired children and will be involved in any of the following activities:
• Classroom teaching: Spoken and written English, Mathematics, Geography, etc.
• Extra-curricular activities: Sports, Games, Drawing, etc.
• Assisting in Computer reporting work, Photo/video documentation
• Providing training to children on life skills, health and personal hygiene
A creative approach to work is useful and you will have the opportunity to initiate new mini projects or activities. Volunteers are expected to be flexible, good at multitasking and prepared to undertake variety of tasks. We welcome ideas for teaching different kinds of activities such as games, songs, arts and crafts or sports and athletics to the children.
