Being a training centre for children with special needs, our school is committed to the principles of special education.
Here the children are trained to become a productive member of the society.
Human beings are born with the ability to interact with the environment around him and learn. This learning starts from the moment the child is born. What does an infant learn in the process of growing? – He/she learns behaviours / skills which help them to become an independent individual. These behaviours/ skills are learnt by instinct without being taught – these are known as adaptive behaviours / skills.

If for some reasons, this ability for the adaptive skills to learn does not function properly, the child will not learn the basic skills of independent living.

Special education teaches the child to learn adaptive behaviours/skills and to use them in functional way helping him/her to lead an unassisted life as much as possible.
We Teach - Adaptive behavior :
   Activities of Daily Living Skills (ADL)
   Communication Skills
   Socialization Skills
   Work Habit
   Leisure Time Management
ADL are the skills of daily care activities. The ability/inability to perform ADL acts as a measurement of the functional status of a person.
Communication skills are a set of skills that enables a person to convey information so that it is received and understood.
It also enables to comprehend and use the received information.
Communication skills refer to the repertoire of behaviour that serves to convey information for the individual.
Socialization skills are the skills, which human infants begin to acquire from the time the child is born.
These skills are necessary to perform, as functioning member of society.
Socialization and communication skills are closely connected to each other.
Work habit means knowledge that every action/work we do, should have a starting point-a particular process and ending the task.
To perform an action certain basic skills are to be learnt
Art and craft is one of the best means for developing work habit.
We give lots of emphasis on art and craft – the children learn and consolidate all the concepts and skills needed for work habit.
Every child should learn to spend his/her leisure time on his own. The children are taught to spend time independently not disturbing others.
   Early Intervention
   Physiotherapy
   Occupational Therapy
   Sensory Integration Therapy
   Speech Therapy
   Play Therapy
   Music Therapy
   Movement Therapy (Dance and Yoga)
To learn the adaptive behaviours /skills properly, we need to control and co-ordinate our body – which activates our brain.
Hence Physio Therapy (PT) and Occupational Therapy (OT) are important part of special education. OT/ PT prepares the body to perform our daily activities.

Sensory Integration Therapy (S I T) helps the co-ordination of all the senses coming from the environment and from child’s own body which in turn helps the child to perform the adaptive skills.

Speech therapy helps in articulation of speech and proper use of language.

Music therapy helps in articulation and has a calming effect on body and mind.

Play therapy is important for socialization skills.

Movement therapy (dance / yoga) helps an individual to express and communicate effectively without any inhibitions and restrictions. Through dance one gets into a dialogue with one’s own body. When a non-verbal, special child makes movements through the medium of dance, he/she is communicating and expressing emotions, which are deep rooted. This has a therapeutic value besides enjoying the rhythm and movement. Yoga relaxes, and de-stresses the child. It has a very calming effect.

Behavior Modification Therapy is the process of replacing undesirable behaviour with socially acceptable behaviour.

Functional academics are academic skills that will be used by the children for the rest of their life. It is imparted according to age, ability and need for social interaction, independent movement and living. We impart grade appropriate knowledge to the children through the school curriculum books.
