Nagpur workshop teaches children to communicate in sign language
June 22, 2017
The Nagpur Municipal Corporation (NMC) came up with a unique initiative for the hearing impaired children in the city.
The corporation's education department organised a sign language workshop for the members of Nagpur for Kids (NFK) club recently.
The workshop highlighted the difficulties of the hearing impaired children in the society. Children members of the club got to know about different hearing and speech disabilities. They also got to learn 26 alphabets and their names in sign language.
The initiative is a step to teach children to respect people despite their disability and an attempt to bridge the gap between the deaf and hearing communities.
