We are pioneers in developing customized curriculum designed for easier comprehension through visual-aids. These trainings are conducted by Deaf trainers, who not only fulfil a much needed gap of role models but are efficient teachers as well.

Indian Sign Language

The uniqueness at Noida Deaf Society is the training of all our students in Indian Sign Language. Deaf people are natural signers and at NDS, we streamline their natural communication in sign language through structured lesson plans. This course forms the very basis of learning for the students and once they have achieved better vocabulary, comprehension and free flowing communication in Sign Language, they are able to join other training programs.

English Communication

Owing to the prevalent focus on speech and oralism in the deaf schools, students are unable to understand the content being taught in the classrooms. On evaluation, students who come to NDS for the first time have a vocabulary of mere 40-50 words. We start by developing their vocabulary to 200-250 words and be able to make simple sentences. At a later stage, the students are also taught the complexities of English grammar usage in the written form to be able to communicate in the mainstream world – at the workplace or in everyday situations.

Microsoft Office

Noida Deaf Society has developed a specialized curriculum for MS Office which helps build basic IT Skills of students in Word, Excel and Internet. The curriculum was developed keeping in mind the visual capabilities of the deaf community, using PowerPoint Presentations to cater the needs and challenges of the students. At the end of the course, the students are put through evaluation exam and are certified by The NIIT Foundation.
