University Of Ottawa Donating Android Tablets to Help Haiti's Children with Speech Difficulties


There are many children who do not develop their speech and language skills on their own as expected; often they need effective support to develop them. The University of Ottawa's Brain and Mind Research Institute has decided to donate 14 Android tablets to help Haitian children with speech development difficulties. The tablets will be loaded with speech development apps that would help to improve mouth and tongue motor skills so that the children can communicate basics like colors, sounds, etc. 'Team Canada Healing Hands (TCHH)' will bring those android tablets loaded with speech development apps to PAZAPA Center, based in Jacmel that serves the entire Southeast Department of Haiti. PAZAPA Center has been helping Haitian Children with special needs since 1987. It supports their treatment, education, and development and when the kids get more communicative, the center integrates them into the community-at-large. It is undoubtedly a great appreciable and encouraging rehabilitation arrangement on devices which were originally developed to help stroke victims.
