Name of the project: In Time for All Children
Name of the organization: Centrum pro dětský sluch Tamtam, o.p.s.
The project aims to create a functional system of hearing examination screening for all newborns in the Czech Republic. If the examination does not take place, it can severely limit the child’s quality of life and his/her family, also having an impact on the society itself. As a result of implementing the project, we can provide the children with timely and accessible assistance. We want to build on experience from local maternity hospitals where such screening already exists but also use experience from the UK where the introduction of nation-wide screening led to a major shift of providing early intervention to children suffering from hearing disabilities.
