The International Commission of Education for the twenty first century has emphasized that one of the principal functions of education is fitting humanity to take control of its own development. It must allow people without exception to take their own destiny in to their own hands so that they can contribute to the progress of the society to which they like, founding development upon this responsible participation of individual and communities. It has underline, no talent hidden like buried treasures in any individuals remain untapped. It is especially applicable to the Persons with Disabilities (PWDs).

Particularly in the field of Special Education, lack of human resources has been creating obstacle for imparting education of the special children as well as mainstreaming in the society. Keeping the above view in the mind and achieving the national goal of universalization and Millennium Development Goals by 2020.

Nilachal Seva Pratisthan (NSP), has come forward and established Disability Rehabilitation and Training Centre (DRTC) in 2010 and started Teachers training programme in the field of Special Education i.e. Diploma in Education - Special Education (MR) and Diploma in Education - Special Education (DHH) which has presently become a centre of excellence in the field special education. The aim of Diploma in Special Education courses is to develop professional for Special Education within a broad framework of education in the current millennium. The course enables pre-service teachers to acquire knowledge, develop competency and practice skills to impart education to the Children With Special Needs (CWSN). After completing this course, the candidates will be eligible to work as Special Teachers in Special Schools, Block Resource Person/Teacher under RTE of SSA, and to appoint as Sikshya Sahayak in General School etc. The both Training Programmes are accredited by Rehabilitation Council of India (RCI), New Delhi. The intake capacity of the both centre is 30 in each stream.

Special school for the Mentally-Challenged Children:

In an effort to care for the mentally challenged children of the communities, NSP opened a Special School for the Mentally-Challenged Children in 1992. “NSP” has been providing special education to the mentally handicapped children through the efforts of our well trained staff, who are well qualified in special education. The teachers have all been trained but the extraordinary thing about NSP is the atmosphere of love which surrounds it and the extraordinary support it gets from its vibrant Parent/Teachers Association. As you know that It is truly a herculean task to inculcate self-independence among the mentally retarded children. The education and training of these children differs a lot from that of normal children. Their syllabus has to include self-dependence, etiquettes, conversation, everyday activities etc. While chalking out their syllabus their level of I.Q. and behavioral problems have to be considered. Their home environment is also required to be weighed while chalking out the syllabus. Since there is no safe method to teach these children, each child is a class by himself requiring special attention. We are providing behavior modification of the mentally handicapped through the services of physiotherapy, speech therapy, music therapy, yoga therapy and special education techniques by a team of interdisciplinary teachers. The mentally retarded children are also deputed to participate in the various tournaments/events organised by government/semi-government and autonomous bodies as well as other social service organisations and schools. The mentally retarded children are afforded an opportunity to present their individual performance and/or group performance in the field of art, acting, dress competitions, drawings, dance competitions, cultural programmes and also outdoor sports events like running etc., or in-door sports like carrom etc., in order to get them exposure to the outside world with a view to inculcating in them the feeling of self-confidence. The main objective of the programme is to bring about varying degrees of improvement in the lives of mentally challenged and integrating them in regular institutions of learning and society in general.

Special School for Deaf and Blind children:

Most special schools in Odisha serve children with a single disability, such as blindness or deafness; children with multiple disabilities are often left out. But NSP has helped to establish special education units within schools for children with single disability such as blindness, deafness, cerebral palsy, etc to serve deaf & blind children aged 3–18 years since from the year 1992.

After intensive training in the special education unit, depending on their abilities children are admitted to mainstream schools alongside their sighted peers. This allows deaf & blind children to gain independence and become part of mainstream life.

This centre is providing Centre based special school providing formal education (primary & secondary) and training in the form or in combination with pre-school intervention, skill of basic management encompassing inputs of personal care, self-help skills, life-skill education, functional academics with required therapeutically intervention (Speech therapy, yoga & Music) to enable the children feel and act like normal children, not being differentiate in the society. Children are given hostel facility and also engaged in academic activities right from class I to class X. Children with visual impairments receive educational services from NSP specifically designed for children who are blind and deaf; special classes, resource rooms, and itinerant teaching services in regular education classrooms within the child's community. In this special school, our organization imparts education by Braille/Sign language method of teaching. Students are trained up with the help of various conventional tools and few modern gadgets also. Training is given to groom them up with special cultural qualities like music, dance, recitation etc. When working on daily living skills with a blind child, our ultimate goal for the child is to transfer the skills learned, into adulthood so that she or he may live as a productive member of our society.

Integrated Education for Children with Disability:

The  centrally sponsored scheme of Integrated Education for the Disabled Children (IEDC) purports to provide educational opportunities for the disabled children in common schools, to facilitate their retention in the school system.  The disabled children who are placed in special schools should also be integrated in common schools once they acquire the communication and daily living skills at the functional level. Some of the disabled children who study In the general primary and secondary schools can't always follow their teachers either due to unawareness of the teacher on teaching techniques in special educational field or due to lack of eagerness or frustration of the disability. Considering this situation NSP has been implementing the Integrated Education for the Disabled Children(IEDC). The Organization has been involving itself for Integrated Education for the Disabled Children of Primary and Secondary schools in this rural part (Kanas & Krushnaprasad Block) of Puri district with its own efforts. This would be an activity preparatory to the child coming into the regular school system.   It would include, among other things, special training for the hearing handicapped children, mobility and orientation training for the visually handicapped, daily living and communication skills training required by children with other disabilities, parent counselling and training in home management of these children.

Working towards our vision of providing every child with her/his right to education, NSP founded IEDC in 1992. Our mission and aim is to install and develop self confidence among the disabled and to remove doubt in their own capabilities so that they can become self employed, self dependent, self respected, and live a own normal life.

Vivekananda Shikshya Niketan (Montessori School)

NSP has undertaken the task of promoting early childhood education through its pre-primary and primary education center known as “Vivekananda Shikshya Kendra”. This Shikshya Kendra provides education to the children in the age group from 3 to 10 years. We deal with this preprimary level of children by a joyful method of learning rather than punishment based teaching techniques. Our teachers provide them elementary education with motherly loving and caring technique in a nice environment to make them accustomed to the school environment. In the preprimary level, the children learn language & basic numerical lessons. We have been able to introduce a modern method of teaching which these kids enjoy for learning and this method has become popular in our community.  The project has brought an important change in the habit of the children who are eager to come to our school regularly. Teaching technique of our teachers has made our children sharper, intelligent and modest in nature. Implementation of this project has brought a substantial positive change in the outlook of the community people towards the education of little children. Thus, action plans that have been formed, focused on certain priorities, with special emphasis on upgrading schooling, training and education for children and youth. The aim is to protect youngsters from deviation and contribute to their intellectual and physical development, by providing them with support and coaching in education, training, cultural and sports activities.

Hostel For Girl Student:

NSP believes that whether you are addressing healthcare, poverty, population control, unemployment or human rights, there's no better place to start than in the corridors of education. Since we believe that education is the only weapon for the backward and downtrodden women to fight against poverty and the only way to establish gender equality, we want to provide more importance to girls’ education. Many girls from poor families, especially in the backward communities of remote villages, generally drop out of school and are being sent away to the cities or nearby towns to work as domestic maid servants.  These girl children work very long hours, have no chance to get education, and are isolated from family and friends. Often they are treated like slaves and are abused physically and sexually too. For motivating the parents of such ill fated girls and to encourage those girl students for the continuation of their studies, NSP is running two girls hostel in Puri Dist. viz . ‘Durga Devi Girls Hostel’ and ‘Dayavihar College Girls’ Hostel’ accommodating 250 girl students. The hostel girls are provided with secondary and higher secondary education along with skill up-gradation / vocational training at the campus college, high school and industrial training centre. Facilities of lodging boarding, recreation, study centre, library, sports and games, daily consumable items, utensil etc. are provided. The project is being supported by Ministry of Human Resource Development, Dept. of Education, Govt. of India since 2004/2005.
