Unnathi Jr. College for Deaf is a part of Special School for the Deaf (SSD), which is run by Sweekaar Academy of Rehabilitation Sciences. The college for deaf was established on July 27th , 2000 in Secunderabad at its Headquarters for providing education to the deaf students. It conducts classes at intermediate level in M.E.C. (Math, Economics, Civics) and C.E.C (Commerce, economics and Civics) courses.
Apart from academic courses, we also provide computer training everyday to our students for one hours. The college has an attached hostel for both boys and female wardens to take care of the wards. With remarkable curriculum and qualified teachers, Sweekaar aims to facilitate overall development of the children and develop social skills.
Once a fortnight, we conduct staff review meetings and parents meeting for discussion. We used to discuss about the completion of syllabus, examinations, valuation of papers, and also take extra care of slow learners in any specific subjects. We inform parents about how the child is performing in the class, and guide them in case parents need to pay attention to the child.
We have started a new Computer training centre with 8 computers only. Our managing Director Dr. Nirmala Hanumantha rao and Mr. Chennaji, Deputy general manager of SBI inaugurated the training center. Students with hearing issue can enroll themselves for DVA (Diploma in Computer Applications), which is a 6 month to 1 year course for intermediate 1st students. P.G.D.C.A. (Post Graduate Diploma in Computer Applications) is a 2 year course for 2nd year students.
Sweekaar Academy conducts different types of cultural programs in Unnathi Junior College for Deaf to connect them to our culture and entertain them. Our students participate in all programs at college and inter-college level which helps them to improve their social and communication skills.
Finding out your child has a learning disability is certainly disturbing, but the best thing you can do as a parent is simply to love and support your child. Get all facts about your child’s learning difficulties and how it affects learning process. You need to work with your child’s school to develop an individualized Education plan to set goals for your child, and describe support that may be needed to meet those goals.
We have four campuses:
Tandur ( Only centre in entire Telangana )
Kadapa ( Only centre in entire Rayalaseema )
Guntur ( Only centre in entire Coastal Andhra )
The need of every special child is unique and hence the treatment. These treatments are not done by any individual doctor or direct medicine. Its a team work. A sample team may have, A Speech Therapist, a Special Educator, a Psychologist, an Audiologist, a Physiotherapist, a Social Worker, a General Physician, Prosthetic / Orthotic Engineers & a Nurse.
Upon early consultation we’ll come to know about estimation. However we are almost free for people from economically weaker section.
