about shravani

SHRAVANI the word is derived from the word Shravan which in Sanskrit means "TO HEAR".

As a centre Shravani is known for its abiding passion for high quality of service to the speech & hearing impaired.

Something about Hearing Impairment, Deafness is as severe a handicap as blindness (if not worse). Being "invisible". It evokes no sympathy, unlike one sees towards the blind. On the contrary it is often the target of ridicule. Children born deaf face a world of silence, hence no speech, limited education, little change of gainful employment and, therefore, a life of dependence and social isolation. Imaging the fate of children who are otherwise as normal, intelligent and capable as any of us. If only we could restore their hearing, they would achieve anything that any of us or our children aspire for.

In case of infants it is easy to ignore hearing impairment as it is invisible disorder and also in most of the cases the ears appear to be normal. As all know that infants cannot tell by themselves that they cannot hear so it is difficult to detect, but still to everybody's knowledge hearing impairment is one of the most common birth defect seen these days.The most critical years for the development of language are from birth to 5 years hence early identification of hearing impairment enables us to give the child the enriched input he/she needs to develop early listening, learning & speech skills.

The main Motto of Shravani is -
"To hear the world"
"To integrate Hearing Impaired children into the educational mainstream."
