A training programme for children with hearing loss held at the Thuan An Centre for Disabled Children in southern Binh Duong province has helped many children develop their listening and spoke language skills.

Director of the centre Nguyen Thanh Thu Thuy said through the Global Foundation for Children with Hearing Loss funded by the US, 11 hearing impaired children taking part in the programme are able to listen and talk and go to integration classes in the 2014-15 academic year.

The Thuan An Centre is providing training for nearly 400 hearing impaired children and one-fourth of them attending the programme, which brings a high hope for them.

The Foundation is a non-profit organisation designed to provide resources to children with hearing problems.

The Foundation and the Thuan An Centre have jointly organised the programme since 201.0

On July 29, US Consul General in Ho Chi Minh City Rena Bitter visited the centre, promising to send more US experts to the centre to help hearing impaired children gradually reintegrate into community.-VNA
