The Centre gives special care for the prevention and reduction of the effects of preventable hearing impairment in young children through early identification, intervention and pre-school education. Besides catering to the children, it also works towards the empowerment of the families of hearing impaired children to face the challenges in bringing up their hearing impaired children. Some of the works undertaken by the institution are Early Intervention, Education, Rehabilitation, Vocational Training and manpower development for the Hearing Impaired, Vision unit (refraction and distribution of corrective glasses), Orthotic, Prosthetic and Physio-therapy unit.

The centre runs a pre-school section, a school for hearing impaired children, and a hostel where school students from distant places stay. The project covers most of the Khasi & Jantia Hills areas and some portions of the State towards Guwahati. The programme addresses early intervention, education and rehabilitation of speech and hearing impaired children of the Region. CBM has provided the Hostel and Vocational Training Centre and expanded the infrastructure to include a Vision Centre and Orthopedic Workshop
