Speech and Language Pathology Department at NUR International University organized a guest lecture with a topic “Clinical Assessment of Hearing Impairment and its Management.”
The guest speaker for the lecture was Dr. Nadeem Mukhtar, who is currently working as a Consultant Audiologist at an Audiology Center in Gulberg, Lahore. He also has a renowned, well-established Cochlear Implant Center at Bahria Hospital.
His lecture focused on the various management techniques for the hearing impaired. He discussed the different hearing tests that could be applied on adults and young children to find out the degree of impairment. Dr. Nadeem also emphasized on the importance of being diagnosed with hearing impairment as early as possible because the speech and language development is compensated otherwise later in life. Thus, in a younger child, better results and improvement can be observed as compared to an older person. His lecture was really comprehensive and informative for the Speech and Language Pathology students.
At the end of this session, Dr. Zafar Iqbal Qureshi (Member, Board of Governors, NUR International University), Dr. Baber Aziz (Dean of Academics) and Ms. Rabia Azmat (HOD-SLP) presented a shield to Dr. Nadeem Mukhtar as a token of appreciation.
