7 days to SHED in SVG…

The countdown continues!  In just one week, I’ll arrive in St. Vincent and the Grenadines (SVG) to begin work on the Speech and Hearing Early Detection clinic aka the SHED Project!  We are in the thick of final touches for workshop preparations and putting supplies together for hearing aid check kits.  Our collaborators in SVG are busy as well with logistical planning on island.  It’s exciting to see plans coming together day by day.

Project Little Spark is grateful to Clearwater Clinical, developers of SHOEBOX audiometry, for recognizing the SHED Project as one of their humanitarian outreach activities and to the Cabot Trust for their financial support of this project.

Back by popular demand…here’s a sneak peek of one of the “hearing gamesSHOEBOX audiometry uses to screen hearing in young children.  Spark on!
