There was a severe lack of professionals who could cater to the unique needs of children with multiple disabilities including Deaf blindness.
Hence in the year 2000 we started a teacher training program with specialization in Deafblindness, first in South East Asia, which is recognized by the Rehabilitation Council of India (under the Ministry of Social Justice and Empowerment).
The two years course of Diploma in Special Education (Deafblind) is a major step towards generating special educators across the country to teach and communicate with children who have Multiple Disabilities with Visual Impairment (MDVI). It aims at generating quality teachers who can meet the challenges of the all round development of the children.
The teacher training course in Deafblindness is geared towards developing knowledge, skills and desirable attitudes in teachers to facilitate MDVI children to blossom to their fullest potential in different settings like home, schools and communities.
The course comprises of intensive theoretical input and practical orientation in terms of hands-on experience with children who have multiple disabilities including Deaf blindness.
