School for disabled kids in Hyderabad focuses on all-round development
The Ideal School for Deaf in Malakpet in Hyderabad is doing much more than just teach disabled children. The 100-odd students here get trained and equipped with skills that will help them with a brighter future. The school teaches children across all religious lines.
The school is run by the Ideal Information Centre for Disabled (IICD). It is a part of the social project of Jamaat-e-Islami Hind.
The teachers at the school also have disabilities. They visit the school daily to teach the children the curriculum as well as lessons in computers. The aim is to equip them for the job market.
The teachers impart job-oriented courses, so that they can get selected in competitive exams conducted by the government.
A similar center is run by IICD for blind students where about 20 students learn in Braille at its center in Mehdipatnam. Here too the students are taught computers and other job-oriented courses.
