CBSE is looking into some reforms in the guidelines for students with special needs and has also asked for feedback from all states and other stakeholders like including computer-based tests, multi difficulty level options for core subjects, flexible subject selection options,attendance waivers and exemption from the existing norm of one or two compulsory languages where Indian sign language or Braille can also be considered as a subject for board examinations.

This can be made feasible with the extensive use of technology only if the current issue of lack of resources can be tackled. It is a possibility that the HRD ministry too may take this up as a model for the entire country.CBSE had consulted 46 stakeholders like National Council of Educational Research and Training, National Institute of Open Schooling, office of the chief commissioner of persons of disability, National Institute of deaf etc before drafting the guidelines.

The draft also proposes infrastructural guidelines for schools for easy accessibility for the differently abled students like construction of a ramp or installing a lift with at least one accessible toilet.
