At present, special education is provided for sight impaired, hearing impaired, mobility impaired and chronically ill children.

A nationwide educational integration program is being extended and work is in progress to allow students with disabilities to study at regular schools.

All the schools and associations for the visually impaired children are listed on the web page of International Council for Education of People with Visual Impairment.
