Hearing screening provides number of benefits:
It enables early identification of the problem and refers the identified individual for diagnosis and guidance and early intervention programme.
It gives enough time for the child and parents to cope with the hearing aid/cochlear implants.
It helps the specialist to plan the rehabilitation such as Hearing Aid vs Cochlear Implantation.
It reduces the consequences of deafness and the cost involved in rehabilitation of late diagnosed children.
The language development and scholastic backwardness can be intervened in school going children.
The threat on the life or job or social well being in adults may also be intervened.

Infant Hearing screening program

Infant hearing screening program is implemented with the aim to screen all the newborns and infants for hearing loss and to identify and refer the high risk babies for further evaluations. Those children identified to have hearing loss will be further evaluated to confirm the possible type and pattern of hearing loss and then enrolled into early intervention program so as to enable them to acquire speech and language skills before they attain school age. This program would eventually enable early integration of such children into the mainstream.


The rehabilitation is provided for the following speech and language problems:

Receptive and/or expressive language delays         and disorders

Language development for toddlers and        preschool-age children

Aural rehabilitation for hearing impaired children

Autistic Spectrum Disorders

Fluency therapy for stuttering

Articulation and phonology disorders

Stethoscope hearing aid

Voice disorders


Speech and language therapy
Experienced team of speech-language pathologists evaluate and treat, children and adults with a variety of communication needs. Initial screening, comprehensive evaluations, counseling and individual therapy sessions are aimed at improving the communication ability .

Balance Assessment


Visualnystagmography (VNG) (ENG)
VNG testing is used to determine if a vestibular (inner ear) disease may be causing a balance or dizziness problem, and is one of the only tests available today that can differentiate between a unilateral (one ear) and bilateral (both ears) vestibular loss. VNG testing is a series of tests assessing balance (vestibular) function by recording a person’s ability to follow visual objects with their eyes and how well the eyes respond to information from the vestibular system.
To monitor the movements of the eyes, infrared goggles are placed around the eyes to record eye movements during testing. VNG testing is non-invasive, and only minor discomfort is felt by the patients during testing as a result of wearing goggles

Specialists in Speech-Language Therapy
Speech-language pathologists (SLPs), often informally known as speech therapists, are professionals educated in the study of human communication, its development, and its disorders. SLPs assess speech, language, cognitive-communication, and oral/feeding/swallowing skills to identify types of communication problems (articulation; fluency; voice; receptive and expressive language disorders, etc.) and the best way to treat them.
Remediation
In speech-language therapy, an SLP will work with a child one-on-one, in a small group, or directly in a classroom to overcome difficulties involved with a specific disorder.
Therapists use a variety of strategies, including:
Language intervention activities: The SLP will interact with a child by playing and talking, using pictures, books, objects, or ongoing events to stimulate language development. The therapist may also model correct pronunciation and use repetition exercises to build speech and language skills.
Articulation therapy: Articulation, or sound production, exercises involve having the therapist model correct sounds and syllables for a child, often during play activities. The level of play is age-appropriate and related to the child's specific needs. The SLP will physically show the child how to make certain sounds, such as the "r" sound, and may demonstrate how to move the tongue to produce specific sounds.
Oral-motor/feeding and swallowing therapy: The SLP will use a variety of oral exercises — including facial massage and various tongue, lip, and jaw exercises — to strengthen the muscles of the mouth. The SLP also may work with different food textures and temperatures to increase a child's oral awareness during eating and swallowing.

Our Audiology Department is specially constructed with sound-proof setting with the most modern technology to assess hearing problems. It is equipped with computerized diagnostic audiometer and middle ear analyzer for evaluating hearing function. Hearing impairment can be easily corrected with our expertise and experience. Today, the hearing aid and the concept of 'hearing aid fitting' has advanced a great deal, providing customized solutions to each individual’s needs.

The Clinic would regularly conduct Hearing Screening Programmes to screen pre-primary children for hearing loss/impairment. Those children identified to have hearing loss will be further evaluated to confirm the possible type and pattern of hearing loss and then enrolled into early intervention programmes , so as to enable them to acquire proper speech and language skills . These interventions would eventually enable early integration of such children into the mainstream. The Clinic would be conducting screening camps for the geriatrics and also for those in industrial areas to check the presence of hearing problems. Awareness and training programmes would be offered to parents who want to learn how to manage and facilitate their children’s speech and language development at home.

Cochlear Implants
At our clinic we undertake the pre-evaluation and the post-operative management of patients undergoing cochlear implant surgery.
Pre- Operative Audiological Evaluation
A suitable test battery is used to evaluate the type, degree of hearing impairment and the candidacy for the cochlear implant is determined accordingly. In case of infants and young children it may take a few weeks to finish up complete assessment satisfactorily. If the patient is a suitable candidate for cochlear implant, a parents counseling session is undertaken. In this session we discuss about the process of surgery, mapping, therapy, expected outcomes in terms of speech and language after the implant and any other queries of the parent
Post Operative Management
The post-operative management includes:
Mapping:
After the surgery, a switch-on of the implant is generally done after 3-4 weeks of the surgery. Subsequently 4-5 sessions of mapping are required in the next 15 days. Afterwards frequency reduces to about once in a month and then finally to once in 5-6 months. It is noteworthy that each individual’s response is unique and hence this schedule may sometimes vary.
Speech and Language Therapy
After the initial adjustment with the map, an intensive auditoty-verbal therapy(AVT) program for language and speech development is undertaken. Each program is customized for the patient and involves long-term and monthly short-term goals.

Speech Therapy
This scenario is common among parents of children who are slow to speak and referred to as having Delayed Speech and Language. But here is a word of caution –It is never early to seek an advice of Speech-Language Pathologist. At Narayan Speech And Hearing Clinic, we will look at your child’s speech and language skills within context of his/her total development. The assessment protocol followed by us is:
1. Parent Interview
2. Aural-Oral examination
3. Informal observation of child
4. Use of standardized tests and scales to calculate child’s understanding and expression.
Stammering
Stammering and stuttering have the same meaning - it is a speech disorder in which the person repeats or prolongs words, syllables or phrases. The person with a stutter (or stammer) may also stop during speech and make no sound for certain syllables
Delayed Speech (AUTISM, ADD)
Speech delay, also known as alalia, refers to a delay in the development or use of the mechanisms that produce speech. Speech, as distinct from language, refers to the actual process of making sounds, using such organs and structures as the lungs, vocal cords, mouth, tongue, teeth, etc. Language delay refers to a delay in the development or use of the knowledge of language.
Misarticulaion
Misarticulation is defined as disorders of the quality of speech characterized by the substitution, omission, distortion, and addition of phonemes. Most forms of misarticulation are quite common in young children and will self correct. Other forms of misarticulation may require intervention from a speech therapist.
Voice Disorder
There are times when the voice is loars or when voice is not come out at all! Colds, allergies, bronchitis, exposure to irritants or cheering for your favorite sports team can result in a loss of voice (temporary or permanent).

Batteries
Your Hearing Aids need a steady power supply from a quality hearing aid, battery in order to run effectively. Even subtle changes in batteries output can mean the difference between clear performance and poor volume or noise control. Premium custom Hearing Aid batteries provide optimal electrical conductivity for the best possible Hearing device functioning.
What are common battery sizes?
The most common battery sizes are 10, 13, 312 and 675. To identify the size, manufacturers use an industry standard color code on their zinc air tabs and packaging.
Color Coding System
1. Size 10 yellow dot
2. Size 312 brown dot
3. Size 13 orange dot
4. Size 675 blue dot
What exactly is Zinc Air?
Zinc Air is the most popular power system. Through a unique construction that utilizes air from outside the battery, these batteries pack more energy into a battery cell than the older mercury and silver systems
Why is there a tab on my zinc battery?
A zinc air battery uses air outside the battery as a source of power. The factory applied tab seals the air holes in the battery and ensures freshness until you are ready to use the battery. Do not remove the tab until you are ready to use the battery. To activate the battery, you simply remove the tab. After removing the tab, wait about one minute prior to inserting the battery into your hearing aid. This allows sufficient time for the air to enter and activate the ingredients. Replacing the tab when the battery is not in use will not extend the battery life.
Are batteries interchangeable among manufacturers?
Manufacturers have different battery quality and Performance, however the battery dimensions are standardized within the industry. For instance, a size 13 battery across manufacturers should fit in your hearing aid. Just match the size designated by the color code.
How Long do hearing aid batteries typically last?
A standard hearing aid battery lasts anywhere from 3 to 22 days, depending on the hearing aid type, battery type and capacity, and the amount of hearing aid use.
How do I know if I should change batteries?
1.Change your batteries if sounds become distorted or you have to turn up the volume more than usual.
2. Some hearing aids will also make a small beeping sound when the battery is low. Be sure to switch batteries immediately when you hear the alarm.
3. Hearing aid batteries often lose power very suddenly, so it's advisable to carry an extra set of batteries with you at all times.
4. To protect against discharging your backup batteries, keep them away from coins, keys or other metal objects

Speech- Language Therapy for Autistic children

Most autism behavioral intensive therapy programs include speech-language therapy. With a variety of techniques, speech-language therapy addresses a range of challenges often faced by persons with autism. For instance, some individuals on the autism spectrum do not speak, while others love to talk but have difficulty using conversational speech and/or understanding the nuances of language and nonverbal cues when talking with others.
Speech-language therapy is designed to coordinate the mechanics of speech with the meaning and social use of language. Such a program begins with an individual evaluation by a speech-language pathologist to assess an individual’s verbal aptitudes and challenges. From this evaluation, the pathologist sets goals that may include mastering spoken language and/or learning nonverbal communication skills such as signs or gestures. In each case, the goal is to help the person communicate in more useful and functional ways.
The speech language pathologist can provide therapy one-on-one, in a small group or in a classroom setting. Therapists who work with children have additional specialized training.
