Primary School for Deaf Children
Ruma started a Primary School for Deaf Children when she realized that the best way to develop capable young adults is to instill learning and education in the formative years. Currently the NDS Primary Wing has more than 80 children from the age group of 5 to 15 getting formal education from Nursery to Class V. These students primarily come from Noida, Delhi and Ghaziabad and mostly belong to economically weaker sections of the society
The classes are graded based on skills and not age. The school follows the Bi-Lingual method of teaching educational content and core life skills, giving the children a strong first language i.e. Sign Language. This language then becomes the mode of communication and also a medium for teaching other subjects.
