Camp and Out Reach Extension Unit
Institute has a sound proof Mobile Speech and Hearing Bus, donated by Lions Club International, which travels to suburban and rural areas around Bangalore and other parts of Karnataka providing early identification and screening services. This bus is equipped with advanced instruments that use the latest technology for hearing screening.
The Camps and outreach extension unit work for reaching the patients and people outside the institute by conducting camps with the help of Mobile Speech and Hearing Clinic Bus.
The aim of this mobile bus is to people who are unable to reach the institute, can be tested in their place itself, so that the problems are identified early and advise them for further treatment. Patients are referred to the institute for further higher check-up.
Children need to put at early age hearing aid and train them for language development, so that they can join for regular school.
The main goal of this mobile bus clinic for school childrens are identified for hearing (Listening) problem, learning problem in the class & also any speech clarity problem like misarticulating, Stuttering, and voice problem and so on. The problems are identified in children at early stage and also to perform better in their academics.
In the bus we do testing for hearing problem and speech problem. Hearing tests are pure-tone automatically Otoscope, Impedence Audiometry, Oto-acoustic Emission test, brainstem, Evoked- Response Audiometry (New Born Screening ).
