Qatar Institute for Speech and Hearing is the dream project of Mr.NiyasKavungal, an Indian national who is an Audiology Engineer by profession and has been working in the field of rehabilitation for the past 10 years. His vision was made realistic by the few likeminded expats who provided financial support to start one of its kind in the state of Qatar. Initially Speech therapy and Audiology were the services offered by Qatar Institue for Speech & Hearing. Demand for more specialised therapies increased and Qatar Institue for Speech & Hearing has grown up to a multi-disciplinary centre offering Physiotherapy, Occupational therapy, Psychology, Special education, Audiology, Speech therapy and a pre-school for special needs children. Over the years Qatar Institue for Speech & Hearing has become the one and only multi-disciplinary medical centre in the state of Qatar registered under the Supreme Council of Health.
