Inclusive and Remedial School For Children With Special Needs

Multi – faced intervention is the launch pad to successful treatment of the various childhood disorders. It is well known fact that the age between 2 to 8 years are extremely critical from the developmental point of view. As the child gains more knowledge, experience and cognitive skills, he/she is also likely to face some common developmental obstacles like difficulties in self control, gross motor, fine motor and ADL Skills, speech and language acquisition. Thus academic, emotional, motor and behavioural problems in children are due to multiple predisposing causes ranging from neuro – developmental delays to dysfunctional family dynamics. Mostly the problems take the form of minor discrepancies between observed and expected development. These discrepancies usually appear as unusual behaviours due to sensory dysfunctions, poor co-ordination, perceptual distortions, short attention span, astereognosis, agnosias, lack of mastery of basic concepts and incomplete language development or behavioural problems such as hyperactivity, defiance, school refusal and so on. The founders of Project LAKSHYA setup an inclusive school with multi- disciplinary team – based unit for children with special needs during school time morning to afternoon and remedial centre in afternoon and evening for children with learning disability going to the regular schools. The experts are drawn from the field of Psychology, Special Education, Speech Therapy and Occupational Therapy. After a structured assessment in the areas of Speech Therapy, Occupational Therapy ,Special Education and Psychology, an intervention plan is designed for each child with inputs from the experts in the team. Thus ensures a holistic approach is taken covering all aspects of development and behaviour. Along with remedial input, use of various skills like Story Telling and Role Play also helps in enhancing the abilities of the children with special needs, especially in the area of social interaction and behaviour.
