TS SSA has launched a special programme called Rapid Assessment cum Identification
of Disabilities in the month of July 2006, to identify children with special needs within
and out side the schools in the entire state. Teachers have screened all school
age children of 6-14 years in the state under this programme by involving Anganwadi
Workers and ANMs at the habitation level. Medical experts assessed such children to
identify their special needs.
