Bridging communication barriers

Mission

Hearing and communication is at the heart of our work. Royal Dutch Kentalis is the pre-eminent specialist in the area of diagnostics, care and education for persons who are deaf, hard-of-hearing or deafblind, and to those who have a language impairment. With or without an intellectual disability or autism. 

 

Do you want to learn more about audiology? Is your organization looking for an introduction course on inclusive education or language disorders? Or are you searching for latest publications in deaf education? We offer consultancy and training services for you.

 

How can inclusive education work for the deaf learner? What does it take to change from the special education paradigm to the inclusive education paradigm? Which steps help to improve hearing-aid service delivery to hard of hearing persons? We bridge the gap between research and practice, by translating theory in everyday needs and skills.
