  • Dr. Meenakshi Dwivedi Assistant Professor, Tikaram Kanya Mahavidyalaya, Aligarh, UP


Technology, knowledge and innovation are the driving forces behind economic growth and social development in every country in the world. Highly educated and skilled citizens are not only competitive in the world economy, they can also respond quickly to challenges and seize opportunities.

People with disabilities in India face many challenges in developing employable skills to acquire meaningful work and lifestyle skills. Preparation for work and lifelong technological development are essential for a successful transition from students with disabilities to adults. Despite the wide variety of policies and interventions, there are many limitations when young people with disabilities work in India. This range comes from the lack of good employment. Little or no access or adjustment; Limited expectations for families and employers; Network shortage, contact or social and interpersonal skills. Higher education plays an important role in providing opportunities for technology development for these students. Coordinated and coordinated efforts are needed from stakeholders from all higher education institutions in India to improve technology and working conditions for adolescents with disabilities.
