Introduction

In support of addressing the issues of children with special needs, Mr. Galgamuwa found an available professional course in Bachelor of Audiology Speech Language Pathology (BASLP) offered in Indian universities in 1995. Following a successful meeting with the Vise Chancellor of Bangalore University Miss Dakshika Bandaranayaka was admitted as the 1st admission Sri Lankan student to receive a placement and later on to graduate with a BASLP.

After completing the 1st degree in India she received a scholarship to earn her PhD in USA. Currently she is a consultant Dr. in ASLP (PhD. in Audiology and Speech language Pathology) at the Maryland hospital, USA.

During the past 22 years, 57 Sri Lankan students have graduated in BASLP.. A majority has gone abroad for their postgraduate degrees, while only 7 remains in Sri Lanka. This is a long term service and a contribution in serving differently able children in the world.

  3. Dr M.V. Shetty Institute of Speech and Hearing - Affiliated to Mangalore University.

The demand for this professionals are very high in the world. In European countries they have a great demand with higher salaries and benefits for higher studies.

It is not less than US 11500 for the 4 Years. Cost of living is also approximately US $4500.Total Cost will be about US $15000.

Usually on our request Samvaad Institute chairman Mrs. Radhika reduces the first year fees by US$ 500 to 1000 depending on the number of admissions and also considering family back ground of the students.

Our Target is to send 10 students annually for the BASLP. But only very few are capable of paying this amount without any constraint. But others are really paying with difficulty.
