is designed to help deaf children had their
parents from all walks of life. We want our children to
hear and speak. They have to face the challenges in life
by themselves. Our objectives are very clear. To develop
strong foundation of language and speech and to teach them
3-R’s and integrate them in normal schools.
Infants And Parents:
is born deaf, parents need to know that somewhere they can
go to seek guidance and help. Early diagnosis and evaluation
of hearing impairment, selection of proper hearing aid suitable
for the child, instruction, parental counseling and guidance
are some of the function of our Infant Training Centre.
A comprehensive MOTHER’S TRAINING PROGRAMME- first of its
type in the country- has been started for the mothers of
the deaf children.
To Primary Education:
the preschool programme our children learn to lip-read,
understand what their peers and family members talk, develop
lots of vocabulary and try to speak. At this stage our emphasis
is to help the child acquir and master the language. At
primary school level we teach 3 R’s, introduction to academic
subjects as prescribed in the syllabus, sports, games and
personality development programme. They are prepared to
face the challenge of integrating to normal schools. We
have four mediums of instruction viz. English, Hindi, Gujarati
Integrated Children And Their Teachers:
Our integration programme starts with ‘Educating the
Educated’ by helping them change their attitude towards
these least understood children. Our social worker and teachers
contact the target group of principals and teachers and
discuss various aspects of integration. Even schools children
are taken into confidence so that they will welcome ‘new
friends’ among themselves. Success of integration depends
on acceptance of the deaf child by the school authorities,
teachers and classmates. Our staff remains in constant touch
with the class teachers of the integrated children.
