Abstract

The author proposes to look into the situation of small children with hearing impaired in Switzerland as a country which is developed, rich, multilingual and multicultural. An example of one part of this federal state with direct democracy, the Swiss romande, introduces readers to different forms of early-developmental support existing in its seven French- and Italian-speaking cantons. The description of existing types of early-developmental support allows to analyse gaps in the system of benefits and early education, which exist in individual cantons, and changes in their funding. This description in the form of a report also allows cantons to introduce new benefits for hearing impaired children and their families. In the summary the author proposes some possibilities of filling the gaps in early-developmental support which still exist in most of seven cantons to strengthen harmonious influencing in this important period of a child's development.
