November 2015 served as an important milestone in SADA’s journey to help hearing impaired children as “Alam School for Speech and Learning” came into being. 30 students are currently enrolled in the school. The main aim of this free school is to prepare the children for mainstream education. The students are provided with quality education, speech therapy facilities, comprehensive audiology checkups along with the regular support by the child psychologist and nutritionist. The running cost of Alam school is PKR 350,000/month which is borne by SADA.
