Lingual Braces for Hearing-Impaired Children


Hearing impairment in children means that they need extra help when learning new words and pronounce clearly. But they need additional support when they learn how to pronounce it. A series of lingual braces with〔a〕,〔e〕,〔o,〕〔au〕,〔θ〕 can help children pronoun correctly in a physical way.

While parents read a storybook with their hearing-Impaired children and use those cute lingual braces to make sounds for each particular animals. It can help to improve the family strength and encourage your child to do the vowel exercises in a fun and interesting practice at home.
