I Hear Foundation
I Hear Foundation is a unique one-of-its-kind organization for deaf infants and babies in India today. It began in Mumbai in 2002.
It provides comprehensive services for deaf infants and babies (from birth to 5 years). IHF develops listening and speech skills in young deaf children.
IHF has a state-of-the-art audiology centre, audiologists, a counsellor and trained therapists and teachers of the deaf.
In just a few years, IHF has established itself in the country. Its children come from across the country, including from as far away as New Delhi, Surat and even Assam—over 1500 kilometres from Bombay in north-east India.
To promote appropriate early-intervention skills, IHF has begun conducting workshops for re-orienting teachers in Mumbai’s special schools.
