Early Intervention Program (EIP) for children with disabilities is a key area for us. The new academic year of EIP, 2018-19, started on June 4, 2018, with 158 students. From this academic year, we have planned to do the monthly assembly for preschool kids on every first working day of the month. Apart from the regular class sessions we are planning to conduct more awareness programs for parents, innovative methods of teaching and celebration of important/special days. Our weekend program started in the second week of June. Thirty (30) students are attending the sessions every Saturdays.

We also offer assessment and therapeutic programs for children with various neurodevelopmental disorders such as Autism Spectrum Disorder, Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, Cerebral Palsy, and Learning Disability. Currently, there are five unique programs that offer services in a lifecycle approach. The empowerment of the family is the soul of all our endeavors. Currently, we have enrolled 70 children of various ages into our programs. This year we are coming out with a parental workbook on Autism intervention, for ease of understanding, and also plan to start a higher education pilot program for students with Autism.

Our academic programs include degree programs for the hearing-impaired (Degree-HI) and UG/PG programs in audiology and speech-language pathology. We are gearing up for the admission process for the coming year. In Degree - HI, apart from the three undergraduate programs - Bachelor of Computer Science, Bachelor of Fine Arts and Bachelor of Commerce - for the deaf, we are starting a 6 months program 'Professional in Graphic Design' which is an integrated course for the deaf and the hearing. The Diploma in Indian Sign Language and Interpretation, a one year diploma program, is being offered to those who wish to pursue a career as a professional interpreter.

Our New Initiatives department is planning the introduction of the skill development program for persons living with CP and Autism in collaboration with the Additional Skill Acquisition Program of Kerala (ASAP).

We also provide enriching opportunities to gain experience and credit at our institution and are glad to announce that we currently have three interns working with us who are all from different universities abroad. Additionally, we have volunteers working with NISH, including one volunteer who will be with us for three years. Recently nine students and two professors from Purdue University, USA visited NISH and spent a week in the institution and part of their study abroad program.

I encourage you to explore ways in which you can be a part of NISH's vision to provide disability services across India. If you have plans to visit Kerala State, we invite you to visit our campus and spend some time with our students and staff. We schedule campus visits when you send us an email to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..
