The School of Audiology and Speech Language Pathology also has the facility of Group Therapy to develop social communication skills and improve functional use of skills that the child has learnt in the individual therapy sessions. Most of the families we have are from remote areas and poor economical background, so most of them are candidates of ADIP Scheme, Ministry of Social Justice and Empowerment. We also provide tele-intervention sessions for the families who are outside the city and cannot visit regularly to the department on a regular basis.
The School of Audiology and Speech Language Pathology graduate around 5 children every year who have achieved remarkable progress in speech and language. We extend our helping hands towards children attending mainstream schools through guidance and home training programmes. Yearly formal assessments for auditory skills, language, speech, social communication and pragmatic skills as well as informal assessment for literacy are done at the department and guidance provided in the therapy. Parent /caregiver training and empowerment is a key to success in the development of children with special needs. Therefore, various workshops and expert talks are conducted regularly for the empowerment and education of parents. A books and toys library for the parents who cannot buy expensive toys and storybooks is available, so that they can carry them to their homes and use them to meet their goals.
