NISH to Hold Seminar on Disability on April 22

Thiruvananthapuram: National Institute of Speech & Hearing (NISH) along with the Directorate of Social Justice is holding the 18th online Interactive Disability Awareness Seminar on April 22.

The seminar, first of its kind, deals with “Osteogenesis Imperfecta: identification and Habilitation”, which will be handled by Dr. Veena V Nair (consultant Paediatric and Endocrinologist, Ananthapuri Hospital and Research Institute, Thiruvananthapuram) and Ms Latha Nair (CEO, Founder, Amrithavarshini).

This online live seminar hosted at NISH will commence on their campus at 10.30am.

This will be simultaneously presented at all the District Child Protection Units (DCPU) offices for audiences present there via internet.

The two-and-a-half hour programme in Malayalam aims to reach out across the state to larger numbers of parents and caregivers, who are not aware of the implications of disability.

Interested people who wish to participate from DCPU offices in each district may contact the Child Protection Units Officer nearest to them and avail the telephonic registration process.
