Research & Publications

The Society for Child Development has undertaken a variety of research projects to explore issues related to disability and disability law. We hope that this research will help the government and the SFCD use our resources more effectively to actualize our vision of a society where persons with disabilities have equal opportunities.

Access To and Availability of Services For women with Mental Disabilities in Rajasthan:
This study undertook a critical examination of the services provided to women with mental retardation and their conditions in state run and other half way and long stay homes, day care centers, hospitals and other institutions providing vocational training and day care services to girls and women with mental disabilities. The state of Rajasthan was targeted for this study since it is an acknowledged fact that mental health and disability related services are woefully lacking in this state.
The study was supported by The National Commission for Women.
Rotary International Research Project:
Examined the use of the Performing Arts as an adjunct to classroom techniques. It was supported by Asha for Education (Arizona, USA), and Rotary Club of Delhi (South).
