Hearing and communication
Over 5% of the world’s population – 360 million people – has disabling hearing loss (328 million adults and 32 million children). The challenges faced by people who have difficulties in hearing and communication are enourmous. In the Netherlands, Kentalis is the pre-eminent specialist in the area of diagnostics, care and education for children, young people and adults with auditory or communicative disabilities, whether they are deaf, (severely) hearing impaired, deafblind or have trouble with language or speaking. We focus on their optimal participation in society on a right based approach.
