Compliments of the Savannah Morning News

Savannah Speech and Hearing Center, a nonprofit organization serving the speech pathology and audiology needs of the Coastal Empire, accepted a SMART Board from Choate Construction. The new SMART Board was installed in the Sound Start classroom, an auditory and oral school for the deaf and hard-of-hearing serving children ages 2 to 6 years old.

The interactive SMART Board enriches the students’ learning experience in several ways by providing a hands-on collaboration between teachers and students; access to engaging forms of media; and a unique platform for students to demonstrate their grasp of the subject through touching, drawing, and writing.

“We were extremely grateful for the opportunity to help and I cannot imagine a better home for the SMART Board,” said Kirk Gilbert, director of operations at Choate Construction. “We are so appreciative of the work Savannah Speech and Hearing Center does for our community and are looking forward to finding future opportunities to help support their mission.”
