The major objective of setting up the Special School for the Blind is to carry concept of “Self Help” to its logical conclusion of supporting vision is man’s most effective distance sense. Its loss or impairment possess very serious threat to the social and economic security of the individual.  Most people regard diminishing vision as a potential disaster with possible implications for the complete transformation in the way of one’s living. Literacy is the very foundation of great deal of human development.  Thus it was the blind people who could not be made literate without special equipment began to be treated as a burden on the community. 

          A visually handicapped child like other normal child is a member of his family and community at large.  Family plays an important role in development of the child.  His education pursuit begins in his family.  The parents of these children are greatly disappeared and dejected when they come to know about their child having loss of vision as to what they should do for their child.  They begin to feel their disabled child as their liability and associate the blindness of their child with the sins of previous birth. With the development of facilities and programmes for the education of visually handicapped children, there is no need of any kind of disappointment or dejection.  What is needed is to think plan and out of the way of minimizing the effects of visuals loss.

Blindness a limitation not a loss.  He can perform many tasks independently and successfully in the absence of sight if provided desired training and relevant guidance.  Keeping this aim the special School has been set up what is needed for blind is to provide them p roper and need based on educational facilities to be equal with others in the society instead of depending upon the family members and society.
