The National Institute of Speech & Hearing (NISH) is a society set up with the support of the Government of Kerala in 1997. It is a comprehensive, multipurpose institution dedicated to the total rehabilitation of persons with speech and hearing impairment.
Ears are the ultimate bonds to the world of sound. A defective auditory system results not only in secondary deprivation but also places immense physical and psychological stress on the individual.
It is for such people that NISH works, with a dedication to make life simple and enjoyable for them. NISH is committed to enriching the lives of these individuals by providing professional and technological services, by ensuring access to remedial measures and promoting community awareness, and by conducting research aimed at enhancing their lives - so as to serve them, their families and the professionals who work with them.
