Everything we do at K.D.N. Shruti School 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.

For Infants And Parents:  

When child 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.

Preschool To Primary Education:  

From 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 & Marathi.  

For 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.
