Overview

Sense International (India) regularly facilitates specialized mentoring support in education and training to educators of deaf-blind children of their partner organizations.
The Basics

Many times, educators in the newly initiated deaf-blind programme face problems in addressing the needs of deaf-blind children due to lack of practical and hands-on experience. Sense International (India) resolves this problem by providing regular mentoring support. The role of the mentor is of a coach and a facilitator. The primary aim of this mentoring programme is to provide deaf-blind educators an opportunity to share their experiences and fears, seek information from mentors and develop skills thereby reducing the feeling of isolation. The purpose of the programme is to contribute to the development of local expertise within India by facilitating the exchange of information between experienced and less experienced practitioners or those new to the deaf-blind field.

How It Works

• The mentors are paid on a per project basis.
• Mentors are senior practitioners who have developed their own expertise over the years.

Sharing Experience – Sharing Good Practices
Many new organisations in the country are in the process of setting up services for deafblind people. All organisations feel a need of exposure & onsite training support to the running of such units. This need has therefore led Sense International (India) to initiate the “mentoring support’ in developing quality services for deafblind persons in the country.
With the support of our ‘Mentor’, educators/CBR workers of our partner organisations are provided with need-based guidance and support in training deafblind children in skills necessary for him/her to carry out day-to-day tasks with ease. After the specific problem solving of mentors, the educators could successfully revise the strategies which was evident as many children slowly started responding to the training.
Today, many deafblind children are more confident about their skills due to the mentors’ support to their educators. Children who used to be completely dependent have picked up daily living skills, mobility and communication skills very well and are learning to be self dependent. The parents and teachers are happy with the progress in the children and are confident that given proper training deafblind children will live an active life in the society.
