Teaching deaf kids to read.

Mark is CEO Telethon Speech and Hearing Institute and he’ll be talking about teaching kids with little or no hearing, how to read. Deafness is endemic in children from the Eastern Wheatbelt.  

Most of the deafness is technically preventable so even if we can start reducing the numbers with poor hearing, there remains the challenge of working with those kids who are already deaf, who need to learn to read.
