NISH in Thiruvananthapuram uses technology to enable the disabled
The National Institute of Speech and Hearing – NISH is based in Thiruvananthapuram.
The institute was started on an idea given by technology expert G Vijayaraghavan in 1997. He got the idea to set up NISH as he is a father of twin girls, both deaf.
He was worried about the lack of infrastructure for the deaf and mute in the state.
When his daughters, Lakshmi and Parvathy were born, the medical facilities were also not there to help identify and diagnose hearing impairments in Kerala.
The institute has been helping in the education and rehabilitation of people with hearing and speech disabilities.
G Vijayaraghavan is also credited with the technological development of the state of Kerala and the creation of the Technopark.
