The Government of Bahrain has launched a mobile teacher project to assist blind students at public schools. Under the project, teachers of the Saudi-Bahraini Institute for the Blind regularly visit blind students to look into their needs and inform their teachers about how to deal with these students.
An integration programme of blind students in public schools started years ago at the secondary level. However, the programme was expanded three years ago to integrate blind students at every level of the education system. The mobile teachers who are familiar with the learning abilities of blind students visit their schools to teach them some courses. All textbooks for blind students had been printed in Braille and these students had also been trained on movement techniques to facilitate their movement at schools. All students were provided with speaking laptops to avoid them from being excluded from the ministry's IT and e-learning initiatives.
