Our approach

Within our body, the hearing impaired is the first agent of its acclimatization. We consider family members to be the primary stakeholders in the person. Since the APDA is an aid and mutual aid organization, we give great importance to volunteers in the adaptation process, which meets the needs of belonging and support on a daily basis. Those in charge of the organization can help individuals who are having problems in their lifestyle. Due to the constant interaction between the hearing impaired and their environment, APDA intervenes by attempting to reduce environmental and behavioral obstacles through communication, information, training and participation in various round tables and specific committees. in order to sensitize political and legislative authorities to the needs and rights of the person living with a hearing impairment.
