With a strong career spanning over 28 years, Devangi is the first Indian audiologist to have received the Humanitarian Award from the American Academy of Audiology in 2012.
Through her work, Devangi has had the opportunity to represent India at various audiology conferences in countries including Denmark, Canada, Amsterdam, Dubai and Italy.
Devangi’s specialty lies in Audiology & Speech Therapy, assessing children and adults with varying hearing, speech, voice and neurological disorders, in addition to planning rehabilitation programs to improve client functioning.
It is this desire for working towards the needs of hearing-impaired children that Devangi founded the JOSH Foundation, alongside the well-known ENT Dr. Jayant Gandhi, with the aim to empower hearing-impaired children. Devangi has been instrumental in gathering funds and providing a platform for these children through various events, lectures and workshops.
In addition to her work efforts, Devangi has also authored books in Gujarati called “Chalo Badhirone Sambhalta Kariye” and another one in Hindi called “Kuch Suna Aapne” to create awareness of the problems faced by hearing-impaired children, while providing effective solutions. Devangi’s most recent project includes a short tele-film aimed at creating awareness around hearing impairment in children and adults.
Devangi has also presented posters and learning modules at different International conferences. She has successfully established a road map to Independence for children with hearing impairment in developing countries.
