Centrum pro dětský sluch Tamtam

Centrum pro dětský sluch Tamtam

A complex approach to professional social, consulting, educational and information services for families with children with hearing impairment.

An original civic association The Federation of Parents and Friends of the Hearing-Impaired, whose creation was initiated by parents of children with hearing impairment already in 1990, was to the date of December 27, 2013 transformed into a public benefit corporation Centrum pro dětský sluch Tamtam, o.p.s. (‘Children’s hearing centre Tamtam’), with the main objective of making a positive impact on the educational and integration options of children with hearing impairments. Another objective was to improve awareness in this area and above all to allow children with hearing impairments to obtain equal and complete access to education and social life.

Since its foundation, the Federation has been the initiator of many positive changes in healthcare, education and social services, and has become the founder of several private schools. The need and requirements of families have changed and become more specific over the years, but were always a current reaction to the overall situation in society. The response to parents´ demands was the gradual professionalization of the provided specialised services focused on children and adults alike.

What services do we offer?
Our organisation offers comprehensive, mutually interlinked services that fully cover the need of children with hearing impairments and their families from birth until 18 years of age.

These oriented activities are conducted through professional teams.

The Federation of Parents and Friends of Hearing-Impaired is the foundation of the Bilingual Preschool for the Hearing-Impaired. The school provides services to children with hearing impairments, speech impediments, the unimpaired children of the deaf parents and those who prefer a smaller collective. The school has its own educational programme focused on the individual support of developing children and preparing them for integration into a normal children’s collective.
