HAPPY YOUNG TODDLERS
It’s a joy to see smiling young children (0-6 years) go about their sessions in the classrooms - shuffling between tactile books & toys, learning braille with bindis, receiving physiotherapy and developing their communication & functional skills.
200 STUDENTS IN OUR SCHOOL
We started in 1977 with just 2 students and 3 teachers but through our dedicated efforts we now have more than 200 happy students in our school. We are a school which caters to the education and communication needs of children who are hearing impaired and have Multiple Disabilities with Visual Impairment (MDVI).
FOR A NOBLE PROFESSION
It is important to develop professional experts who are qualified to teach children with diverse communication and learning needs due to multiple disabilities. The teachers are their gateway to the outside world and they have the vital task of making the child independent and confident in all aspects.
FOR A BETTER FUTURE
There are about 26.81 million persons with disability in India (2011 Census). Among them, 4.1 million are in the employable age group of 19-29 years. The need of the hour is to ensure sustainable employment opportunities for this group of people to ensure that they are contributing citizens of the country.
