Heating and cooling equipment manufacturer Nordyne is sponsoring Friday’s iHear symposium held through the St. Joseph Institute for the Deaf of Missouri.

The online program helps deaf and impaired children develop language skills through interactive individual sessions with therapists.

“At Nordyne, we enthusiastically support web-based technology,” said Dave LaGrand, company president and CEO. “So it’s a natural fit to support a local organization that is using the Internet to make meaningful differences in the lives of children.”
