Treating speech-language disorders does not mean medical treatment; it refers to rehabilitation, teaching, counselling, or behaviour modification for which a special speech laboratory has been designed.
The clinic, with its experienced speech-language pathologist, offers digital polysomnography treatment in Hebbal, Bangalore for a variety of speech & language disorders.
Highlights of treatment are,
Treatment on systematic and scientific lines.
Customised treatment to suit patients' specific needs.

Treatment services are available for,
AVT is a method for teaching deaf children to listen and speak using their residual hearing in addition to the constant use of amplification devices such as hearing aids, FM devices, and cochlear implants. Auditory–verbal therapy emphasises speech and listening.
It aims to modify speech rate, regulate breathing and reduce muscle tension. Over the last few decades, the institute has successfully treated many Persons with Stuttering (PWS) and stammering.
Articulation and Phonological Disorders
It aims to improve the intelligibility of an individual's speech.
We have software programs for providing therapy for these disorders
Voice: Aims to reach the patient's optimal pitch, loudness, and quality
Aims to rehabilitate individuals with language impairments (such as Specific Language Impairment (SLI), Aphasia, and Pervasive Developmental Disorder (PDD), etc. by adopting a multi-modal stimulation approach (i.e. auditory, visual, and tactile)
A hearing aid is a small electronic device that a patient wear within or behind the ear. It makes some sounds louder (amplification) so that a person with hearing loss can listen, communicate, and participate more fully in daily activities. A hearing aid can help people hear more in quiet and noisy situations.
A hearing aid has three essential parts: a microphone, an amplifier, and a speaker. The hearing aid receives sound through a microphone, which converts the sound waves to electrical signals and sends them to an amplifier. The amplifier increases the power of the signals and then sends them to the ear through a speaker.
Types of hearing aids,
Behind-the-ear (BTE) aids: in this type, the assisted case is connected to an earmold or an earpiece by a piece of clear tubing. This style is often chosen for young children and the elderly with severe to profound hearing loss. The BTE aids are easy to be cleaned and handled and are relatively sturdy.
Mini BTE aids: It also fits behind/on the ear but is smaller. A skinny, almost invisible tube connects the aid to the ear canal. Mini BTEs may have a comfortable earpiece for insertion ("open fit"). Mini BTE increases comfort, reduces feedback, and addresses cosmetic concerns for many users.
In-the-ear (ITE) aids: All hearing aid parts are contained in a shell that fills in the outer part of the ear. The ITE aids are more significant than the in-the-canal and completely-in-the-canal aids, which may be easier to handle for some people than smaller aids.
In-the-canal (ITC) aids and completely-in-the-canal (CIC) aids: These hearing aids are, in minor cases, that fit partly or entirely within the ear canal. These are the smallest hearing aids and offer cosmetic and some listening advantages.
Cochlear Implant counselling is given to patients who do not benefit from hearing aids. Cochlear implant pre-counselling happens before a recipient or their family formally decides to receive a cochlear implant. The most common evaluations are medical and audiological. And depending on the recipient, other meetings and assessments might be held with hearing professionals. These are important because their results can help to give you an idea of what to expect during and after the implant. The professionals can help set realistic expectations and determine if any special factors should be addressed during or after the surgery.
A thorough examination to identify sleep abnormalities is termed polysomnography, commonly known as a sleep study. During a polysomnography study, your eye and leg movements, blood oxygen levels, heart rate, respiration, and brain waves are all recorded.
The polysomnography room (sleep laboratory) is kept calm and dark during the exam. There won't be anybody else in the room with you, and there is a bathroom in every room.
A low-light video camera is often installed in the sleeping area so the polysomnography specialists watching over you can view what's happening in the space after the lights are turned out. Additionally, it includes an audio system, allowing them to communicate with you and hear you from their observation post outside the chamber.
One of the techs will apply sensors to your legs, chest, temples, and scalp after you get ready for bed using a soft adhesive like glue or tape. The connections connecting the sensors to the computer are long enough to allow you to move about in bed. A tiny clip is also applied to your finger or ear to track the amount of oxygen in your blood.
An expert in technology keeps track of your,
level of blood oxygen
abdominal and chest movement
snore and make other noises while you sleep.
The research technician could ask you to use positive airway pressure (PAP) equipment to treat sleep apnea. A mild air stream is given to improve your breathing through a tightly-sealing nosepiece on this apparatus.
The data is then collected, digitalised, and then displayed on a computer monitor or printer, which the doctor then uses to detect the root cause of the sleeping disorder. The test findings are often unaffected even though you won't likely be able to fall asleep as quickly or sleep as soundly at the sleep centre as you do at home. Sleeping through the entire night is unnecessary to get reliable polysomnography findings. Consult with doctors at Manipal Hospitals now.
