Hearing assessment for adults living in Mumbai is done on appointment basis. The usual waiting time is one week. The outstation cases may either seek appointment or come in a queue each day. About 15 to 20 cases are taken on First come First Serve basis each day. Hearing assessment in children below 3 years (both for those living in Mumbai and outside) is done on priority on First come First Serve basis. The usual waiting time is about one week. However children are assessed more than once before intervention measures are recommended.

NIHH recognizes the need for providing a comprehensive program for habilitation and rehabilitation of speech–language communication skills of individuals with Hearing impairment, Cleft Lip and Palate, Mental Retardation, Pronunciation/articulation problem, Voice problems, Stuttering, Reading writing difficulties and other language disorders. Preliminary and extended evaluations are done to identify speech, language, reading and writing difficulties of children and adults. According to the findings, patients are advised for speech therapy. Speech therapy is a long term procedure depending on the disorder.

For Psychological evaluation appointments are given to local patients who can not be attended to on the day they report to the clinic. Outstation patients are seen the same day in most instances. Evaluation for infants and elderly patients are done on a priority basis. The approximate time for preliminary screening is 1 hour and 15 minutes. Clients requiring detailed assessments and differential diagnosis may require 2 to 3 more sessions.

We are equipped with one of the best diagnostic and therapeutic infrastructure.
