CBSE proposes to introduce sign language, braille as subjects for students with special needs

Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) is mulling over including sign language as an independent subject to provide computer-based tests, attendance waivers and flexible subject selection options for students with special needs. 

The board also proposed that such children may also be given exemptions from the already existing criteria of two or one compulsory languages in board examinations.

CBSE is in the process of formulating comprehensive guidelines for students with special needs.

A senior official of CBSE said, "It has been proposed that Indian sign language or braille should be treated as a language to satisfy the formula prescribed by the board. For students with mobility issues, the CBSE has recommended creation of online class content for children. Attendance requirements in cases of children with severe disabilities can be waived."

The board has further asked for feedback from states and stakeholders on the policy draft, which is prepared after widespread consultations with various quarters.
