IBM breaks tech barriers for dead kids

STAFF REPORT KHI: Deaf Reach Schools and Training Centers, a project of Family Educational Services Foundation offer academic and vocational skills training for deaf children and young adults in an enabling environment where students can excel. In addition to a full academic regimen, they also learn marketable skills such as Culinary Arts, Tailoring, Stitching, Embroidery, Arts and Crafts, IT, Carpentry, and more.

Six Deaf Reach Schools and Training Centers care for upwards of 800 deaf students and are located in Karachi, Hyderabad, Sukkur, Nawabshah and Lahore.

Literacy training for parents, families and the community is also emphasized, enabling them to communicate with their deaf children. This holistic, community centered approach is an educational model to meet the increasing need for Deaf Education in Pakistan, and is replicable in all areas of the country.

The YE units are specially designed for children aged three to five with a focus on creating a positive impact on preschool learning and teacher training in line with government education agendas.

Today, with rapidly changing technology, unlimited internet access and dynamic educational resources, there are many options to provide education for students with special needs,” said Adnan Siddiqui, Country General Manager, IBM Pakistan and Afghanistan.
