Japanese translation of the FCEI Consensus Paper
We are happy to inform you that the Japanese translation of the 2012 FCEI Consensus Paper is now available on our website: http://www.fcei.at/unit/fcei/positionstatement
The translation was initiated and carried out by a volunteer group composed of ENT doctors, audiologists, D/HH parents, and D/HH-persons, who work with deaf and hard of hearing children in Japan. The group is planning to share the Japanese version of the consensus paper with families of children who are deaf and hard of hearing, policy makers (Health, Labour and Welfare Ministry and Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology) and professionals of the field.
