Echo-disc / Auxiliary Training aids

Echo-disc

According to the Health Promotion Administration’s report that shows treating hearing loss before a baby reaches 6 months of age results in significantly better speech and language outcomes than treating later.  However, it still needs long-term efforts from hearing loss children and parents. 
Through the process of learning music, such as feeling the vibration of an instrument, the hearing loss children could much  better develop their sensitivity of listening.  After a long-term learning, children could express their own expression through music and further improve their speaking ability.
