COVENTRY- The Coventry Public Education Foundation (CPEF) recently gave out Teacherâ€™s Aids to the elementary schools around the town.
Audrey Levy-Lachance, Co-president of the Tiogue Elementary School PTA and secretary of the CPEF, explained that a Teacherâ€™s Aid is constructed by placing two pieces of PVP piping together to form a telephone.
She said that when the child talks into the pipe it amplifies their voice which makes it easier to hear themselves speak.
Lachance said with younger children, itâ€™ll help them learn how to pronounce their words better.
She said that this â€śhelpful toolâ€ť has been on the market for a number of years but that a local business man had donated 1,000 of them to the CPEF a few weeks back
