Training and
Capacity Building

The significant work of Sense India is to build the capacity of various stakeholders like persons with deafblindness, their parents and caregivers, special educators, senior professionals, caregivers, teachers from inclusive education system, medical and para medical professionals and government officials on identifying and understanding the needs and issues on deafblindness. Special educators and senior professionals who are working in the field of deafblindness sometimes find it difficult to find appropriate opportunities to update their knowledge & skills and learn about latest interventions, ideas being followed in the field. Caregivers often struggle in identifying an appropriate training and face challenges while addressing the deeds of persons with deafblindness. Sense India provides this opportunity to all the stakeholders through national, regional, state level trainings and ensures quality services being delivered to persons with deafblindness.

Sense India and the need for deafblind Advocacy

Advocacy forms an integral part of the Sense India strategy for influencing others to make a bigger impact. It is a process through which we influence policy and practice to bring about positive change in the lives of persons with deafblindness. In the process persons with deafblindness and their families are empowered to take control of their lives, have choices, and are able to secure access to basic services and representation, as full and active members of society.

Until 1997, there was only one school in India providing services to 23 children with deafblindness. Today there are 61 projects of Sense India in 23 states, reaching out to more than 80,000 persons with deafblindness in the country. Sense India has been successful in developing services for children with deafblindness, initiating human resource development and representing persons with deafblindness in the mainstream legislations and policy of the country.
