FCEI Ecosystem Ethos:

FCEI Africa holds informed choice, mutual respect and the focus on family support as fundamental principles. Our aim as members of the multi-disciplinary team (see graph) is to support families to create optimal environments for happy, healthy, thriving families and optimal language learning and development for all deaf and hard of hearing infants and children.

We support and respect the rights of all deaf and hard of hearing infants and children without prejudice to any preferred family choice in mode of communication, education and technology required to meet the unique needs of each individual child. We recognise the essential roles of families and Deaf adults in the support system for parents on this new journey.
