Turn a deaf ear ? - NEVER!
Since 1973, the Carel du Toit Auditory-Oral Centre for deaf children in Cape Town, has succeeded in helping deaf babies and pre-schoolers, regardless of their socio-economic circumstances, to overcome their hearing disabilities.
A stimulating, loving environment is created at the Centre in which a deaf child can learn to speak in a natural way.
It was through the vision of Prof. Carel du Toit, an ear, nose and throat surgeon, at Tygerberg Academic Hospital Complex, that the Centre was established.
He knew,that with the correct intervention, children could overcome the communication barrier of deafness and learn to speak and live normal lives.
There is, without a doubt, hope for every deaf baby and young child at the CAREL DU TOIT CENTRE!
Being deaf does not mean that your child will be unable to learn to listen and speak. Even children who hear normally have to learn to LISTEN and to SPEAK.
