The Jeddah Institute for Speech and Hearing (JISH) is a not-for-profit institution, devoted to speech-language and hearing service delivery. It is the first facility of its kind in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia . The Institute was established in 1991, in the city of Jeddah to improve the well-being of people living in Saudi Arabia and neighboring countries by providing premium services for two of the most cherished human faculties: Speech/Language and Hearing. JISH is credited to have set the highest standards for speech, language and hearing services in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.
To achieve this goal, JISH adopted the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association (ASHA) standards of clinical practice. JISH is a dynamic and progressive center with modern technology, high technology, high quality professionals, and commitment to excellence!
JISH provides on-going intensive continuing education through courses, workshops, and internships at accredited university programs and clinics in the United States of America and the UK to ensure that our speech-language pathologists are updated with the latest in clinical techniques and research . In addition, JISH continues to grant scholarships to its staff for graduate and doctorate degrees in the fields of Speech-Language Pathology and Applied Behavior Analysis.
JISH embarked on a partnership with Dar Al Hekma College and helped establish the first speech and hearing undergraduate program in the Western Region of Saudi Arabia to fulfill its long term goal of developing the profession at the ASHA standard of clinical practice in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia,, in accordance with the ASHA guidelines for higher education.
Our mission is to empower all patients and their families and provide them with the best possible service regardless of cost. To this purpose, the JISH Patient Sponsorship Fund was set up to ensure that every family has access to our services regardless of their ability to pay. Our commitment to this set of core values has not changed. JISH continues to be about helping all families with special needs reach their maximum communication potential.
