April 1, 2018
It is my pleasure to welcome you to our web home!
Thank you for your visit. I hope you get to know us more!
Starting March 1, 2018 the clinical operations will be open on all seven days of the week. This is a major change in our services so as to provide flexibility for the customers as much as possible.
March is a special time of the year for us. The children from our Early Intervention Program for the deaf move on to regular schools and we have a special function to celebrate the graduation from EIP . This year 42 children graduated on March 23. This ceremony is special to us as we have been with the children and their parents for several years and they are entering into a new phase of life outside NISH. The tears of joy that we see at each of these graduation ceremonies is a well-deserved reward for the teachers who toiled to teach them literacy and speech.
On the academic side, we are gearing up for the admission process for the coming year. We are hoping that we will be able to start at least one more degree program in the upcoming year and we are in the process of approvals.
On the clinical side, the audiology and speech clinics are continuing their diagnostic and assessment services. We continue to strengthen our services through adding more labs. Also we took a major step in joining the EIP program under the Audiology and Speech Language Pathology Department. This will have major impact in the attention given to the children undergoing early intervention. Also we are providing transdisciplinary approach to our customers who come to the specialty clinics such as CP, Stuttering, AAC, LD, and ASD.
Our dual language early intervention program has started and this will be in addition to our regular Aural Oral Training and Auditory Verbal Training.
We continue to collaborate with other Universities and organizations in terms of conducting workshops, seminars and exchange programs. Our team work is our strength. Cooperate, Collaborate and Coexist is the mantra for our operations.
Thank you for visiting!
