TTD made an overwhelming gesture towards the opportunities for specially challenged students. TTD Chairman Mr Chadalawada Krishnamurthy had formally announced that the Devasthanams will now open admissions for the differently abled students to the prestigious Sri Venkateswara School for Deaf and Dumb.
Dr. Krishnamurthy on course of his visit to the university has directed TTD officials to prepare a master plan for launching a degree college for deaf and dumb students which will begin from the next academic year.
“As many as 1,000 such children are studying at SV Schools in Tirupati, Bhimavaram and Warangal, while another 160 are studying at the junior college in Tirupati. The TTD will enrol the services of donors to expand its educational activities,” he said, while speaking to a leading newspaper daily.
The Chairman inspected the kitchen, classrooms and teaching aids that are distributed to students and inquired about the methods employed while teaching students with hearing impairment. He also directed the TTD officials to provide hygienic food, quality drinking water and appoint an in house technician to repair the hearing aids of students as and when.
