ABSTRACT:
Education is a human right. Every child has a right to education irrespective of her/his caste, creed, race, religion, region and disability. Deaf children are not exceptional and have right to education for their overall development of personality. Prior to RPWD Act 2016, there were minimal endeavors that could be seen for accessibility to communication and education of deaf children. The present paper is an attempt to critically analyse the RPWD Act 2016 to understand its educational implications for deaf people in India. The first part will discuss about the policies and educational acts prevailing in India for the education of persons with disabilities. It will be followed by scrutinizing RPWD Act, 2016 in order to understand its implications for education of deaf children in India.
