WELCOME TO OUR CAREL DU TOIT CENTRE

  Carel du Toit Centre is where children with hearing impairment learn spoken language through the use of hearing technology, natural learning experiences and parental guidance.

We understand that diagnosis of a child’s hearing loss can set your mind racing with many concerns and questions, and at the Carel du Toit Centre you will find the answers and support you need to ease your family’s journey and find direction for the many decisions ahead.

With early detection and intervention, deaf children can learn to speak

The late Emeritus Professor Carel du Toit, ENT surgeon and founder of the Carel du Toit Centre.

The Carel du Toit Centre in Parow, Cape Town, offers an all-encompassing school with an early intervention programme and pre-primary and foundation phase Listening and Spoken Language environment for children with hearing impairment.

Infants of a few weeks old or older children, diagnosed with deafness or hearing loss, start their journey with the centre through their parents’ participation and could then join our schooling programme from 30 months of age.

The aim of the Centre’s intervention programme is for its children to have adequate spoken language to integrate into the hearing society.
