About 4 babies are born deaf in every 1000 birth in our country. If hearing disability detected at earliest provided hearing devices are assertive and well-managed, then the child learn spoken language naturally, can converse with relative ease under the direction of an auditory-verbal therapist, special educator in partnership with parent,

There is no neo- natal hearing screening program implemented in our country to detect hearing disability of new born babies. But, this is deprived things, Hearing impaired child first faces disability of deafness, dumbness follows, then they put in special school to develop, further they are taught by sign language method up to middle school. Still there are no facilities to continue their higher education in same stream.

Hence, only 2.5 % reaches to secondary school, 1.1 % to higher secondary, 0.9 % up graduation level. EMFA dose not only focus on auditory habilitation, we look forward to over all development, we putting academic foundation with concrete base of general education and providing pre and primary education of general stream also, helping them to do well academically, Finding their aptitude / interest in other field, art, craft, sports, dance, drama, playing musical instruments, etc.The main focus is that, they must have literacy skills, read right and have good language, and speech to communicate, have better “quality life” become independent person in the society.

We conducted all relevant activities for the oral-aural rehabilitation of young age hearing impaired child and parents are taught to deal the problem of their special child by involving them in to daily activity. parent counseling, guidance and training, social awareness program, AVT therapy, speech- hearing- language training, pre-schooling, primary schooling, general school readiness and integration, health check-up, workshops, seminars, parents get-together, educational tour, picnic, festival celebrations, visits of social worker, experts of oral education field etc. for over all development of hearing impaired child . Enabling them to have equal opportunities in the main stream of society

Since, we could put 71 hearing impaired student in to general school up to this year, This year Balvikas age center has 25 and school has 25 hearing impaired kids and 45 mothers attended regular training along their child, For the main streaming and general school integration, student of Balvikas prepared them to enter in to semi English medium for further standard.
