As FEPEDA’s President, André Cuenca, has underlined “neonatal hearing screening, access to hearing devices, access to early intervention, mainstreaming education have changed the approach to deafness”. However, children and young people with a hearing disability and their families still have needs to which we must all provide an answer”.
