Other Highlight Activities

ADHIKAR: PARENT EMPOWERMENT PROGRAM 2016

As all the concerned already know HACSE organizes one certificate course for the parents of young children with hearing impairment. For this year the course started on 1/12/16. There are 17 parents who have enrolled for this program out of which 03 are fathers. HACSE particularly encourage the fathers to take advantage of this course to ensure their participation in the process of providing overall stimulation to the child. During ADHIKAR, college invites various resource persons from the field of education, child development, psychology, special education, parenting, disability management, social work, food and nutrition science etc. The aim of this is to develop advocacy skills in parents and make them aware of their rights. The program helps them to look at their child as child first and know about the special needs after that. Interested parents, resource persons, donors please contact program coordinator Dr Sirur on 022 25531041.

ALUMNI MEET

HACSE is organizing alumni meet on 25th Dec 2016 to form an association of the alumni. A motivational workshop has been organized by eminent resource person in the area of role of teacher and her /his personality in shaping students behaviour Dr Guha has been organized under UGC funding. Around 60 alumni and 30 current students have enrolled for the program. Interested alumni please contact Ms Sandya Pagare for registration.

GOOD BYE TO VETERAN PROFESSIONAL Dr Lakshmi GOPALKRISHNAN

Dr Lakshmi Gopalkrishnan has given long 16 years to the development of HACSE. The college says a goodbye to her as she is superannuating on 31st Dec 2016. We all have a feeling of deep gratitude and respect for this veteran professional who has contributed positively to the field of special education. She has worked as special teacher for 11 years before joining HACSE. She is a teacher by profession and a learner by passion. The college is going to feel the vacuum created by her superannuation in terms of activities and tasks for sure but also in terms of emotional support. Management, staff and students wish her a very fulfilling and healthy retired life.

CRE program on literacy development

The college has organized a special CRE program on literacy development on 24th and 25th Jan 2017. This is exclusively for the trained and RCI registered teachers of RTT High School. The aim is to facilitate a consistent policy of literacy development in school.

ARUSHI - Our newsletter

B.Ed (Special Education - Hearing Impairment) is the single most significant activity of HACSE , around which revolve all the other activities.

Most of our B Ed (HI) students are from either semi urban areas of outskirts of Mumbai or from other small towns of Maharashtra where B Ed (SE -HI) programs are not available. There is a vast difference between urban metro areas and the rest of the Maharshtra in terms of avenues to upgrade the skills and knowledge of in service teachers.

Hence, we at HACSE are much concerned about in service up gradation of our alumni. HACSE tries to keep the alumni in the loop of recent developments through various ways. One of our highly successful efforts towards this direction is ARUSHI our annual newsletter. It is the strongest link between us and our alumni.

HACSE has been publishing and distributing ARUSHI for a decade now. It is published on 22nd February every year. Eminent rehabilitation professionals, special educators, government officials, parents, individuals with disabilities contribute to this newsletter in order to make it reader friendly having a long shelf value.

AARAMBHA - Disability Orientation program for Mainstream teachers

Conventionally, the child with disabilities were to be enrolled in special set up as the first choice and then will be sent to a mainstream set up whenever he/she is ready for it. However, now inclusive education is seen to be the first choice for ALL children, including those who may or may not need specialised pre school training.

In short, a big number of children with diverse needs will enter mainstream schools in near future. It will greatly benefit non impaired students without special needs. It will certainly facilitate the process of making schools and society more inclusive and diversity friendly

One of the biggest challenge is of training the classroom teachers in order to make them ready for their students with diverse abilities and hence diverse classroom needs.

As one of the pro active contributions towards this herculean task, HACSEattempts at training mainstream school teachers on various educationally relevant issues. Since for many teachers our training program is the first time they get systematic exposure to disability issues, we have named the training program AARAMBHA - mark of a beginning of a long lasting relationship between special and mainstream education.

The objective of the program is to give skill based training to classroom teachers on recognizing disability, encouraging assessment through rehabilitation professionals and facilitating their education in classrooms.

For holding AARAMBHA, please write to principal.hacse@gmail.com
