Kasturba Oral School for the Hearing Impaired (KOSHI)
It is said that, the quality of one's communication is the quality of one's life. With a vision of improving the quality of communication and life of children with hearing impairment, KOSHI was established in the year 1996. The school has embraced Oralism, a method of teaching that uses lip reading and speech through mimicking the mouth shapes and breathing patterns of speech. The school has classes from Pre-KG to third standard. Once the foundation is established strong and speech skills are imparted to the students, they are integrated into mainstream schools. The journey of KOSHI started with 4 students and today, 110 students have benifitted from this school. They have been successfully integrated into mainstream institutions. At KOSHI, we not only focus on the child's education in class, but also strive at creating the right learning environment at home, by training parents in Oralism. Parents are involved in their child's progress right from the first day of school.
