Eighty-five students passed out of Dr S R Chandrasekhar Institute of Speech and Hearing here on Thursday. Three-fourths of them were girls. Eight students were awarded gold medals on the occasion.

After obtaining her Master’s degree, Vishnavi Ramadas said she wants to find a cure for auditory neuropathy and help bring children with hearing impairment into the education and other sectors. “Many people are suffering from auditory neuropathy and I want to improve the ways in which it is being treated. After teaching for a while, I want to pursue a doctorate in the field and see how I can contribute.”

The Institute’s technical director P Rangasayee said speech experts play an  important role in rehabilitating children with special needs. “The scope is very high for these students in plastic surgery, neurology and neurosurgery units in hospitals. They can help patients who have undergone cleft lip and palate surgery,” he said.

NIMHANS Director Dr P Satish Chandra was present at the ceremony.
