Sri Venkateswara School for the Deaf was established in 1974. The school imparts free general education and vocational training to deaf children, provides placement, and guides them towards becoming independent individuals.
The school has 35 teaching and 30 non-teaching staff. Its management governs three schools for the deaf - at Tirupati, Bhimavaram and Warangal.
Free boarding and lodging facilities are provided to boarders and free mid-day meals are provided to day scholars. The teacher-to-pupil ratio is maintained at 1:10. Teachers interact with parents of the children on a regular basis.
The medium of instruction is Telugu. Yoga is taught to help in the physical and mental development of the children. Children are trained in various sports and compete with normal children in inter-school cultural and sports competitions.
Many students have secured jobs in TTD and other organisations. The management proposes to upgrade the school to a junior college. It also plans to start a separate school for deaf girls. It will soon go in for group hearing aids, impedence audio meters, induction loop system and other hearing aids.
