Ziauddin College of Speech Language and Hearing Sciences – Helping Others to Communicate
Ziauddin College of speech language and hearing sciences is paving the way for trained professionals to cater to the needs of those who have trouble speaking and hearing. The college offers undergraduate and post graduate degrees on as well as different speech and language therapy courses. It is Karachi’s most distinguished speech language college.
Pakistan is a diverse country in terms of population, however, over 20 million out of 200 million people suffer from mild to serious speaking and hearing problems. It is a real calamity that to cater such a huge number, only a handful of speech language/therapists are operating, that too without adequate facilities and equipment.
Seeing this as a major obstacle between the recovery of those suffering from communication frailties, Ziauddin joined forces with the Speech and Hearing Association of Pakistan (SHAP) to launch state of the art “College of Speech Language and HEARING Sciences” in the year 2007. Since then, the college has achieved notable milestones along the way.
