A new program for Russian speaking therapists and parents ONLINE - Dr. Dr. h.c. Monika Lehnhardt

  1. 1. PORA! A new programme for Russian Speaking Therapists and Parents ONLINE! Cernobbio – June 10th, 2010 Dr. Dr. h.c. Monika Lehnhardt Founder of Lehnhardt Academy and Chairwoman of Prof. Ernst Lehnhardt-Foundation
  2. 2. „Believing in progress does not mean believing that any progress has yet been made.“ Franz Kafka – 1883 - 1924 „The introduction and successful implementation of NHS programs is the sound basis for early intervention. Advanced technology, applied in hearing aids and cochlear implants, fundamentally changed the perspectives for several hearing impaired and deaf children. Provided parents and therapists define the right individual goals for very young children and they know how to get there, high expectations are fully justified.“ www.monika-lehnhardt.net
  3. 3. Scenario in Russian Speaking Countries ‣ In most of these countries NHS is not in place or in a start-up phase ‣ The majority of pediatric CI recipients are relatively old ‣ Many therapists are not experienced in working with very young children ‣ Rehabilitation methods - appropriate before the introduction of new technology- are still applied ‣ Parents are deliberately not empowered www.monika-lehnhardt.net
