At Spandan, with special efforts and due to early intervention, some children show great improvement and excel academically. The goal of the KG section is to identify such children between the age group of 4-10 to put them on a fast track of education so that they can join children in regular schools that have
an integrated/inclusive program for special kids. Special kids who are identified as slow learners and have borderline IQ usually make up the strength of this class.
Since these children find it difficult to accept information in conventional teaching methods, the educator spends time using other methods to improve children’s acceptance and understanding of the subject matter. With the right intervention, such children do well in school and later in life too.
Methodologies employed are:
Strength based learning
Equal opportunity for special kids and preparation to be normal members of society
Increased self-esteem and confidence
Increased exposure to entire gamut of learning
8 Children have been successfully integrated in the regular schools so far. Assistance is given to the new teacher of the child for 2 to 3 months after integration to make sure that child has adjusted well and will be able to cope with the new environment and teaching methods. Spandan has made tie ups with a few schools government as well as private to make it easier for the parents and the children.
