making a difference in the lives of deaf children

The Central Society for the Education of the Deaf (CSED) is a well-established institution that educates children with profound hearing disability. We provide model teaching and training facilities in English and Marathi at both our centres, the Central School for the Deaf (CSD) and at Maitri Centre for Hearing Impaired Infants. CSED was started in 1966 by Rhoda and Adal Parakh in their living room, with just 10 students and three teachers, working on the principle of oral language and conversation to teach children with speech and hearing disability … (What we do).
