The school serves a very important need of the society. The children with hearing impairment have a platform through which they are able to lead a normal and fruitful life, as they get just the kind of care and attention which normal children get. The school inculcates in the children self-confidence, helps them drop their complexes and difficulties, and gives them a feeling of being normal. The school tries to integrate the hearing impaired with mainstream, and make them fully independent and good citizens of the country.
