NISHITHA – LIFE REGAINED!

Nishitha is a bright 17-year-old who just completed her intermediate. She is a normal girl with hopes and dreams who aspires to become an engineer someday. Talking to her, you would never guess that there was a time when she could neither hear nor speak.

Nishitha was diagnosed with congenital deafness when she was 9 months old. Her father is a small time businessman and her mother is a home maker. Together, they tried their best to help Nishitha lead a normal life. She was 9 years old when the improvement in her language and listening made her family consider a cochlear implant.

SAHI helped them let go of their fears and provided them with financial assistance for the surgery. After the implant, Nishitha underwent auditory verbal therapy at the hospital for a year along with her mother. The therapists and her mother pushed Nishitha to give her best. All their efforts paid off! Now she can hear clearly, talks dime a dozen and has a bright future ahead of her.

This is the story of Nishitha, a girl who went from just being able to respond to some sounds to being a confident, ambitious teenager who can speak with ease.
