National Association of the Deaf organised the Kids of Deaf Adults Workshop (KODA) on 13th December, 2014 at Auditorium, Carmel Mount School, Sector 47, Chandigarh. Over 15 kids of deaf adults & 65 deaf adults participated in this workshop which was led by Mr. Sanjay Taneja, (President of Noida Deaf Friendship Club) & Ms. Surbhi Taneja, (Sign Language Interpreter).
Both Mr. Sanjay Taneja & Ms. Surbi Taneja took a session with kids of deaf adults (KODA) discussing how the deaf world and hearing world is different and children bridge that gap. Children had their doubts cleared, had some back and forth questions for their parents moderate by Ms. Surbhi Taneja.
This workshop took a more practical approach with a lot of brainstorming which had left a positive impact on our hearing children and we hope that next one would be the same kind and better!
