You can make a difference by supporting our community programs.


Infant screening program at the government hospital

We have taken up the initiative of screening new born babies at the Bowring and Lady Curzon Hospital in Shivajinagar, Bangalore. Approximately 200 babies are screened every month. In case the babies fail the test we follow up with them at regular intervals to confirm the hearing status. Children with hearing impairment are referred for hearing aid fitting and speech therapy at the institute. All our services are provided free of cost.


Community based program for identification of speech and language disorders

At Samvaad, we have adopted five primary health centres where we screen all children from birth to 5 years for speech and language disorders. Our team then visits the families and refers them for a detailed assessment and therapy which is provided free of cost.


Speech therapy for stroke patients

Many of the patients who have suffered from stroke have severe speech issues. You can help enable a stroke patient on the road to recovery by sponsoring 6 months of their speech therapy.


Your selflessness has great impact

At Samvaad, we are grateful to our trustees and donors who have contributed generously towards the growth of the institute.
