West Bengal project helps deaf children get admission in regular schools
October 26, 2017
Ayesha Khatoon from West Bengal is a 15-year-old deaf girl who studies in class 6 in a mainstream school.
Two years ago, she could hardly communicate with her parents and was not a part of any school.
Today, she is among 200 deaf kids who have got a chance to study in a regular school as part of a project run by Deaf Child Worldwide.
Deaf Child Worldwide is an international organisation, which has involved 720 children, 280 primary schools and 500 teachers in Kolkata, Hooghly and Jalpaiguri in its project.
The project provides communication and social skills, speech training to deaf children and primary school teachers are given training on deaf-friendly teaching methods.
The programme aims to improve the academic performance of the deaf children in regular schools by promoting inclusion both in schools and communities. It works with parents, teachers and students to help the deaf children understand their true abilities.
