N.A.B. Haryana: Integrated Education Programme

Initially when NAB, Haryana introduced its Integrated Education Programme, the school authorities had doubts. However, the cobwebs were soon cleared due to the efforts of NAB, children themselves and concerned parents. Their programme has now reached a stage where school shows interest and enthusiasm to admit visually impaired children and provide them all help in imparting education.

Itinerant Teacher model of Integrated Education setting is being followed for imparting the education to visually impaired. In this model, an itinerant teacher caters to special needs of minimum eight children of a particular geographical area. These teachers also play counsellor’s role for parents, school authorities and community at large with a view to change their attitude towards misconceptions related to blindness.
