Our team of social workers, case managers and social work assistants are on hand to provide a diverse range of services to clients such as personal development, family issues, coping skills, needs assessment and managing expectations.

Learning Support: Provide one-to-one intervention to students with hearing loss who are currently attending mainstream schools ranging from pre-school to tertiary level. Speech therapy: Provide one-to-one intervention to enhance students' listening, articulation and language comprehension skills.

Hearing Test & Equipment Aids

Staffed by a qualified audiologist, SADeaf’s Hearing Care Centre (HCC) provides a full spectrum of hearing care-related services. Besides hearing tests and consultations, clients and members can also get their ear moulds made at the HCC and purchase batteries and other accessories at nominal rates.

Interpretation & Notetaking

Our staff interpreters have extensive interpreting experience in a diverse range of settings – at schools, law courts, corporate workshops, government functions among other places and events. We also have a pool of note-takers who are deployed mostly to clients studying in institutes of higher learning such as ITEs, polytechnics and universities. Note-takers are carefully matched to clients based on their skill-sets and background.
