The program is constructed to bring them into hearing and the speaking world & to enable them to get education in normal school with normal peers. Parent’s encouragement is also done on their participation in every activity. This is the only center in this region with no government support. In addition to that, for late joining hearing impaired kids, on the demand & support of their parents, un-aided special primary (aural oral) non-residential school setup is started from 2012 with due permission of commissioner of persons with disability of govt. Of Maharashtra.
In view of the government’s commitment to achieve ‘education for all’ by the year 2010, it was imperative to enable these deaf children to develop necessary basic language and other academic skills to cope with the demands of inclusive education as well as special education. At the Balvikas Kendra (center) for the hearing impaired, the oral-aural method of communication is followed to train these children. They listen, learn and talk. This allows parents and other family members to play a leading role in teaching children with hearing impairment. They can help in bringing up their children in a way that their overall development can be ensured. The basis of this overall development is language development and speech.
Parents can help their children with hearing impairment in learning by providing them with a favourable social environment at home. Conscious efforts from parents of deaf children can go an extra mile in securing the bright future of their children.
