Have audiometers, will travel…

Our SHOEBOX audiometers have arrived-small enough for remote travel and set up as well as Henry approved!

Preparations are in the works for The SHED Project, a Speech and Hearing Early Detection (SHED) clinic, and we’re excited to share that we recently received our first shipment from SHOEBOX audiometry.  SHOEBOX generously offered a significant discount for our project; consequently, we are now able to provide two audiometers for the first clinic set up in Kingstown, St. Vincent and the Grenadines (SVG).  More updates to follow…

The SHED Project:

1. Provides speech & hearing screening as well as hearing aid wellness clinics in Kingstown and Bequia, St. Vincent and the Grenadines (SVG)

2. Provides caregiver and teacher training at the School for Children with Special Needs in Kingstown, SVG and the Sunshine School in Bequia, SVG (two partner schools with Project Little Spark)

3. Trains local persons to serve as audio-techs to ensure project sustainability without needing to rely on experts from abroad

The SHED Project is supported in part by funding from The Ella Lyman Cabot Trust.
