Welcome to the website of JSS Institute of Speech and Hearing, Dharwad. With the blessings of His Holiness Jagadguru Sri Shivarathreeshwara Deshikendra Mahaswamiji, the JSS Mahavidyapeetha, Mysuru, established the JSS Institute of Speech and Hearing, Mysuru, in the year 2001. The institute is well known for its quality of education and services. Noticing a sizeable population with communication disorders in northern part of Karnataka, where proper medical services pertaining to speech and hearing were not available, we established our second institute, the JSS Institute of Speech and Hearing, Dharwad, in the year 2014. The centre aims to generate quality human resources and also to reach out to the needy population in this region. The institute also conducts public education activities on speech and hearing such as camps, orientation programs to create awareness among the general public. Like other JSS institutions, we are committed to provide quality education and clinical services. I am sure that the institute will be a centre for early identification, assessment and rehabilitation of people with communication disorders in northern Karnataka.
