First meeting between +QS and parents of hearing impaired children

The first meeting between parents and +QS took place in April 2013 to define strategies in order to create the "Association of Parents of Hearing Impaired Children in Equatorial Guinea." Issues related to the +Q1 Seed campaign were addressed at the meeting, where a group consisting of 2 otolaryngologists, a psychologist, one speech therapist and one audiologist will continue the care and assessment program initiated in 2012.

Audiometry studies and otoacoustic emissions will be performed in younger patients in this campaign, as well as the training of local personnel in speech and basic audiology and a basic level course on Ear and Hearing Primary Care, aimed at parents, family, teachers and health workers in general.
