Welcome to Hear His Voice Uganda Rehabilitation Services
At Hear His Voice Uganda, we are dedicated to promoting and providing comprehensive rehabilitation services to individuals with hearing loss and their families. Led by Mrs. Justine Lubanga, the Director of Reahabilition at HHVU, we understand the significant impact that deafness can have on the lives of children, parents, families, and our mission is to empower them to overcome communication barriers and lead fulfilling lives.
Our Rehabilitation includes;
Our audiology services are the foundation of our rehabilitation program. We provide thorough hearing screening and assessment to accurately diagnose the degree and type of hearing loss. Armed with this knowledge, we tailor individualized treatment plans to address each person’s unique needs.
One of our flagship programs is Auditory-Verbal Therapy (AVT). AVT is a specialized approach that focuses on developing listening and spoken language skills. Our team of experienced and certified auditory therapists work closely with families, especially those using cochlear implants and hearing aids, to guide them through the AVT sessions. By using the latest techniques and technology, we help our clients unlock the full potential of their hearing devices, facilitating improved communication and language development.
Cochlear Implant Mapping, Troubleshooting, and Programming: Our team of experts specializes in cochlear implant services, including mapping, troubleshooting, and programming. We work closely with individuals who have cochlear implants to optimize their device settings and ensure the best possible hearing outcomes. Through regular follow-up appointments, we provide ongoing support and adjustments to maximize speech perception and overall hearing experience
Speech and Language Therapy
For children with hearing loss, communication can present unique challenges. Our one-on-one speech therapy sessions are tailored to meet each child’s specific needs. Through these personalized sessions, we focus on improving articulation, language comprehension, and expressive language skills.
We firmly believe that hearing aids and cochlear implants are crucial links to the hearing-speaking world. As such, we promote aural-oral communication, ensuring that sign language and other visual methods of intervention are not used in our speech therapy sessions. This approach encourages our clients to maximize their hearing potential and engage effectively in verbal communication.
Early Learning and Intervention
We recognize the importance of early intervention in facilitating successful outcomes for children with hearing loss. Our early learning and intervention program is designed for children aged 3 and above. We provide a nurturing and stimulating environment that prepares them to interact and integrate academically and socially.
Through engaging activities and play-based learning, we aim to foster language development, cognitive skills, and social interaction. Our team of educators and therapists work together to create an inclusive and supportive space where children can grow and thrive.
Our team consists of dedicated teachers, speech therapists, counselors, and experts in the field of hearing loss. Each member is passionate about supporting children with hearing disabilities and ensuring they receive the specialized attention they need to thrive academically, socially, and emotionally. We stay updated with the latest research and best practices in the field to provide the highest quality services.
One of the cornerstones of our program is our trained teachers who have expertise in working with children with hearing loss. They create a safe and inclusive learning environment where children can engage in activities that promote language development, cognitive skills, and social interactions. Our teachers employ various teaching strategies, including sign language, lip-reading, and auditory training, to cater to the unique needs of each child.
At Hear His Voice Uganda, we understand the significance of continuous learning and professional development. Our capacity-building initiatives include various trainings, exchanges, learning sessions, and internships. We collaborate with professionals, educators, and caregivers to enhance their understanding of hearing loss and rehabilitation techniques.
