ABOUT THE CONFERENCE
As we are aware, only a small percentage of Specially Abled. (Divyang) children have facilities to receive education in our country and the percentage of those receiving technical education and vocational training is even worse. The methods used for educating and training are still traditional and old and the modern day science and technology has yet to create an appropriate impact in the area of the education of the disabled. Further, since the untouched population is large, it is imperative to think of various ways and means by which the Education and Vocational Training need be planned in future. Rehabilitation facilities for Deaf are also inadequate in India. IIT Roorkee felt it necessary to brainstorm at global level on various issues on effective methods of teaching and rehabilitating the Deaf on modern and scientific lines. Therefore, this conference is being organized on the following themes:
1. Education and Rehabilitation strategies - issues, challenges and case studies of individuals/ organizations.
