Our deaf workshop leader Halimeh Sarabtah continues her beautiful work in Palestine. Before the summer, we gave her several big drums to use with deaf children. The drums’ sound is low and loud, and enables the deaf children to feel the vibrations. The children loved to play loudly on the drums. But this created a problem for the children with a cochlear implant. This year, she solved the problem by dividing the music group in two: one for completely deaf children, and one for children with a cochlear implant. Halimeh shared with us that the children reacted very well on this, and both groups are now creating their own sounds, according to their preferences!
