Delhi University to stop using the term 'deaf & dumb'
The Delhi University has said that from the next academic session, 'hearing and speech impaired' will be used instead of 'deaf and dumb'.
This is to remove the stigma associated with the term 'deaf and dumb'. Earlier, the university had decided to replace 'blind' with 'visually impaired'.
Experts say the changes are being made to also bring in a difference in the way society looks at things. The DU has introduced many positive changes on its campuses to make the facilities accessible to students with disabilities.
