► School Sound Systems

For children who are hearing impaired and who suffer from the various attention deficit disorders.  A Sound System can be provided to Primary Schools and benefits all the students especially those who are deaf or hearing impaired or those with attention deficit disorders. The reason this is aimed at primary School children is because they use a "Home Class Room" where they spend the majority of their School time this equipment is not portable.  73% of Teachers note that increase in behaviour with learners remaining on-task for longer periods where this equipment is used and off-task behaviour was easier to address as the Teacher used a friendlier voice in a lower volume. Portable systems are now in use enabling teachers to use them on playing fields etc.

Schools can apply for a system by contacting their local Lions Club or they can make direct contact with the District Hearing chairman .
