Ashray Akruti’s project ‘Cochlear Implant Surgery’ is mainstreaming many hearing impaired children by the gift of hearing through free Cochlear Implant surgery. Ashray Akruti has executed this project with the help of Max foundation, Hans foundation, Vijaya Diagnostics-Hyderabad, AYJNIHH- Mumbai and Ministry Of Social Justice and Empowerment.
The younger the kid receives an implant the easier for him or her to listen and speak. Till Now, Ashray Akruti supported 20 cochlear Implants. The cochlear implant enables the sound to be transferred to hearing nerves and enables to hear. It helps the children to gain hearing and develop speech and language.
After the Cochlear Implant Surgery the child needs Auditory Verbal Therapy to help him or her listens and acquire speech and language. The specially trained teachers, audiologist and speech therapist of Ashraty Akruti do the follow up of the surgery. They also work closely with the parents to educate them about the stages of the development for speech and language.
