April 15, 2017 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm

The Team AUS in collaboration with “Ali Yavar Jung National Institute of People with Hearing Disabilities” has conducted a Free Diagnostic, Distribution of Hearing Aid and Selection of Cochlear Implant camp in the University Campus on 09/09/2016 to 10/09/2016. Total 31 Hearing Aids were distributed to the deserved candidates. For entire Team AUS, it was an overwhelming experience, when the “Divyang” brothers and sisters with hearing disabilities started listening the voice immediately after the installation of hearing aid. The Team AUS has shortlisted many other people but due to unavailability of Govt. Disability Certificate they couldn’t get benefited by the scheme. It was then decided that the camp will again be organized after a gap of two months. One candidate was selected for Cochlear Implant. The scheme of Hearing Aid distribution is available for people of any age and Cochlear Implant is for the kids of less than 6 years of age. The distributed hearing aids are one of the finest quality available in market and one costs around Rs 25,000/-. The Cochlear Implant surgery for one ear is around Rs 8,00,000/- (Eight Lacs). The entire scheme is sponsored by AYJNIHD. The “Divyang brothers and sisters” with hearing disabilities, who wish to attend the next camp can contact the representative of Team AUS, Asst. Prof. Alok Dubey, Department of Special Education (HI), Arunachal University of Studies, Namsai, Arunachal Pradesh with Income Certificate, Aadhar Card and Disability Certificate.
