Prof. N.P.Nataraja, Ph.D
I warmly welcome you to the JSS Institute of Speech and Hearing, Dharwad. Established by JSS Mahavidyapeetha, Mysuru, with the blessings of His Holiness Jagadguru Sri Shivarathreeshwara Deshikendra Mahaswamiji, the JSS Institute of Speech and Hearing, Mysuru, has earned a reputation for its excellent education and services.
Recognizing the significant population with communication disorders in northern Karnataka, where adequate medical services for speech and hearing were lacking, we established our second institute, JSS Institute of Speech and Hearing, Dharwad, in 2014. The centre's primary goal is to generate high-quality human resources while also serving the needy population in the region. The institute conducts public education activities on speech and hearing, such as camps and orientation programs, to raise awareness among the general public.
As with all JSS institutions, the institute is committed to providing exceptional education and clinical services. I am confident that the institute will serve as a centre for early identification, assessment, and rehabilitation of individuals with communication disorders in northern Karnataka.
