Considering that factor, the Chief Minister of Rajasthan Vasundhara Raje is mulling over to open a separate university for ‘hearing and speech impaired’ students in Rajasthan. It was addressed in a camp organized at Sawai Man Singh Medical College, Jaipur. The state government has also distributed cochlear implants to 489 children.
CM Raje on opening a separate university
This university will provide admission to students from entire North India along with Rajasthan. This university will emerge as a major support to hearing and speech impaired students. It will definitely make them expand their capabilities with the help of specialized teachers.
Present situation in state
Talking about the college, there is Raja Ram Dev Poddar College at Gandhi Circle where these kids have only option of pursuing Bachelor in Arts. It will be a major boost for hearing and speech impaired’ students if a separate institution gets build for them.
In present, there are around 845 students including girls at Government Seth Anandi Lal Poddar Senior Secondary School for speech and hearing impaired children. These children are taught in sign language. In fact, the former principals of the school too had expressed the need for a separate college or a university for such children with specialist teachers.
