A very purposeful effort will go a long way in the rehabilitation and integration of deaf children with the mainstream
PADC is a pioneer in the domain of rehabilitation of Deaf & Hard of hearing children. Their strategy of empowering the mother to be the leader for mainstreaming her child is an unique and path-breaking innovation. I have personally seen the extra ordinary results they have created. It is a one stop destination for parents of deaf and hard of hearing children seeking holistic speech and language training for preschool education.
