Welcome to the Carel du Toit Centre - where deaf children learn to speak!

The mission statement of the Carel du Toit Centre is straightforward and easy to understand for parents who feel discouraged by the discovery of their child's deafness.

We believe, and know, that children with hearing loss have the same capacity as children with normal hearing, to learn to speak.

We believe that children with hearing loss must be exposed to day-long listening through the use of appropriate hearing-aids or a cochlear implant.

A hearing environment is created at the Centre, the same as for normal hearing children, where the child with a hearing loss will learn to speak by learning to listen in a natural environment.

Listening experiences and natural interaction create an intensive speech-development environment, which leads the child to linguistic competence. This process continues throughout the school years, laying a solid foundation for life.
