Sangeeta Doloi's review of VAANI: I feel it is easier for hearing people to learn Sign Language rather than making deaf children learn how to speak. This has not worked out in my son's case and I feel that I wasted a lot of time attempting to make my son speak. After my interaction with VAANI, I have realised that Communication is more important in the development of language than speaking. (This review was posted by VAANI, Deaf Children's Foundation staff member on behalf of a mother of a deaf child who served by the nonprofit with her written consent. The mother does not have an email address required for posting a review.)

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

that I get to meet other parents of young deaf children and share experiences We are able to support each other too. I am also able to communicate much better with my son.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

very supportive and taught me a lot.
