Special education for deaf and mute, mentally retired and learning problem children is a complex field for volunteers and requires special talents and interests. However, this Volunteer Honduras Project allows you to play a crucial role in the lives of deaf and mute children.
Your tasks in this project may include helping to improve or develop the communication level of the children. You will primarily adopt communication techniques such as auditory-verbal, bilingual-bicultural, cued speech, oral method, acoustic method, Rochester method, speech reading (lip-reading), manual sign languages (PSE, ASL, Signed English, Signing Exact English), sign supported speech (simultaneous communication), and total communication.
All volunteers in this field must use sign language to provide the primary students an opportunity to learn it and to help them feel more confident with themselves and their ability to communicate with others. In addition, you will also be involved in other curricular and extra-curricular activities such as games, painting, and dancing.
