NCERT brings out books that can be read by both blind and normal students

New Delhi, Apr 21 (UNI) The NERT has come out with books that can be read by the blind and other disabled children along with the normal children in the classroom.

‘’These books are part of efforts to have real inclusive classroom, where children can share the same space and same books, without any feeling of insecurity or discrimination,’’ Anupam Ahuja of the Department of Education of Groups with Special Needs at the NCERT told reporters here.

‘’It was high time that we moved from homogenous to heterogenous classrooms,’’ she said.

‘’Keeping a few children in separate classroom, only because they have separate traits was not proper and not the way forward,’’ Ms Ahuja said.

Each booklet has Braille and other tactile elements besides word-picture flash cards to cater to children with learning disability, Director NCERT Hrushikesh Senapaty said.

These books have been brought out under ‘Barkhaa Series, supplementary graded reading series, originally developed by the NCERT.

They were available in digital platform on the NCERT website and can be downloaded free of cost. A bar coded card of these books has also been made through which these books could be downloaded in mobile phones.
