Experience has proved that the child can express his feelings and opinions effectively through conversation. We encourage children to bring their experiences from home which are shared in the form of conversation or passages. On these topics floated through news and conversation, the teacher plans further activities like directed activities, visits, teacher told stories etc.
While teaching these activities the teacher always keeps in mind the textual language , concepts of maths- science & geography, development of auditory and reading –writing skills, grammar.
Stories, visits and other activities are planned to introduce difficult concepts.
Care is taken that by the time the student starts handling text-book he is comfortable and familiar with the textual language.
Each student is individually evaluated from time to time.
The student takes about 4 to 5 years for the above readiness. As soon as he is ready further schedule is planned.
After conducting an Individualized educational plan (IEP) it is decided whether the child has to continue in our special school or is to be integrated in a mainstream school. Syllabus and method of evaluation as per Maharashtra State Education Department is followed for all the primary and secondary classes.
All the students have a right to complete basic education till standard seventh. As per the students capacity he is directed to pursue Maharashtra State Secondary Board Exam or vocational training. We do not leave any stone untouched so that most of our students pass SSC with good marks. Every help is rendered for theory and practical’s such as:
