Uniform Sign Language Books to be launched by National Institute of Special Education

Sources close to the National Institute of Special Education (NISE) have disclosed that the organization will introduce sign language books for the hearing-impaired within six months.

The process for the development of an all-purpose guideline was undertaken by the NISE in 2019-2020 to help aid special needs persons who are either enrolled in academic programs or might seek enrollment through future academic cohorts in the country.

When discussed in detail, it was suggested that the NISE has decided to develop uniform sign language books because the manner of teaching hearing-impaired children varies across Pakistan.

Language patterns like pronunciation and speech have been determined as major areas for academic readjustments, and the new sign language books will fulfill such requirements.
