It is a residential school like no other. For those who study and stay here are not just children with speech and hearing impairment but also their mothers. Yes, each day brings with it a new reason for the mother and child to cheer about, as they learn the oral deaf education and speech therapy. A mother says,” Now, I understand when a son is able to tell me if he is having stomach pain”. They stay till the child is ready to mainstream in regular primary school.
