Join the Children’s Hearing & Speech Centre of BC (CHSC) at their 2nd annual Sing A Long concert, which will be featuring Will Stroet and the Backyard Band. All funds raised at the concert will benefit the Audiology Program at the Centre. You can help deaf and hard of hearing children in BC to reach their full potential at school, at home and in society.
You may wonder – how can children who are deaf or hard of hearing enjoy music? At the Children’s Hearing & Speech Centre, located in Vancouver, BC, children who are deaf and hard of hearing are learning to listen and to speak. And while sign language was once considered the most common and visible option for deaf and hard of hearing children, today a deaf child may begin to wear a hearing device when he or she is in infancy and learn to talk and sing just like a hearing child. This combination of technology and education/therapy makes this dynamic–a deaf child listening and speaking–a reality.
Early bird tickets are $10 for children 17 and under, $12 for adults 18 and older and $40 for a family with 2 children under 17 until February 28th, 2013.
