Maharashtra to start high schools and colleges for deaf students
April 14, 2017
The government of Maharashtra has decided to set up high schools and colleges for the hearing impaired students in the state.
The decision was taken by Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis in a meeting with the representatives of the State Level Association of the Deaf (SLAD) held at the Mantralaya.
Fadnavis has asked the officials to create an inclusive education plan in one month.
The government plans to setup learning centres to teach Indian sign language in schools.
Industrial training courses with interpreter facility will also be considered to improve the technical knowledge of the hearing impaired students.
Fadnavis has also agreed for a Brain Stem Evoked Response Audiometry Test to find out genuine beneficiaries so that the actual needy should only get the benefits.
