National Institute of Speech & Hearing (NISH) and National Institute for Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation (NIPMR) are collaborating to conduct the third batch of part-time Assistive Technology (AT) course from March 2022 to June 2022. This is a first of its kind in India, combining international expertise as well as local know-how in a unique online learning model.
The format of the course has been updated and revised to a 3-month duration. The entire course will be conducted online with an optional 3-day face-to-face session, at NISH, Thiruvananthapuram, the dates of which will be announced soon.
The course would consist of a series of workshops by practitioners in AT. The course participants are expected to be from varied backgrounds, with an interest in deploying AT solutions for persons with disability (PwDs).
