MoBay Testing

MoBay Clinic

We are working with the Reach to Teach Task Force, which also includes representatives from the Caribbean Christian Centre for the Deaf, Jamaica Association for the Deaf,  and Sam Sharpe Teachers’ College, to develop hearing testing services and education. Currently, the only hearing clinics in Jamaica are located in Kingston, in the southeast. This initiative would serve people who live on the western side of Jamaica. Families will need less time and money for travel, and be able to receive counseling by people more familiar with resources in the area.

Resources we need include…

  • Materials to renovate the building that will be converted for the hearing clinic. Testing rooms need to be created with sound-isolating materials.
  • Cerumen removal equipment
  • Air-conditioning unit
  • Testing equipment, including an Auditory Brainstem Response unit that can be used to diagnose hearing loss/deafness in young children.
  • Computers
  • High-speed internet
