The primary focus of the Carel du Toit Centre is to offer early intervention to all children who are deaf or have a hearing loss in order to develop their speech. Children with hearing loss have the capacity to successfully acquire age-appropriate language through the use of suitable hearing technology together with committed parental support and quality therapeutic services. The ultimate goal is for each child to develop functional spoken language.
The Carel du Toit Trust was set up as the fundraising arm of the Carel du Toit Centre. The mission of Carel du Toit Trust is to mobilize and develop resources to advance whole-child development through early identification and spoken language for every child who is deaf by supporting and promoting the work of the Carel du Toit Centres, nationally – through:
