As an apex institute in the country Ali Yavar Jung National Institute of Speech and Hearing Disabilities (Divyangjan) (AYJNISHD(D) is in existence for more than three decades. It has established itself as a center of excellence in the field of research and manpower development for persons with speech and hearing disabilities. AYJNISHD(D) is an autonomous organisation under the Department of Empowerment of Persons with Disabilities (Divyangjan), Government of India, New Delhi. I take immense pride in producing future speech and hearing rehabilitation leaders through our time-tested professional approach in research and training with the help of our dedicated staff and faculty. We endeavor to enable our students to face national and global challenges in the world of speech and hearing rehabilitation of persons with disabilities with a multi-prong approach.The institute not only focuses on professional development but also provides an ideal scientific platform for the all-around development of a student to excel in the environment of rehabilitation of persons with disabilities.

The foundation of our institute is our highly trained and competent professionals drawn from various fields. They ensure that the right type of rehabilitation is carried forward in the name of this institute. We prepare our students and make them ready for placements at international standards and to meet the local requirements.

The institute has state-of-the-art infrastructure and a conducive environment for the overall development of persons with speech and hearing disabilities through diagnostic and therapeutic interventions. For me the most important aspect of rehabilitation of persons with speech and hearing disabilities is the effective implementation of Schemes of Government of India, be it pre and post cochlear implant care or hearing aid fitting service implementation, through the scheme of ADIP and SIPDA of Government of India. Join us and let’s take this journey together for rehabilitation of persons with speech and hearing disabilities.
