Special Education Need
Children after getting their formal testing done from a clinical psychologist are informally tested by the in-house therapists to know the exact area where the child requires more attention.
The classrooms of Manav Rachna International School are well equipped to cater to the needs of children having diverse learning needs. Special Educators use multi-sensory aids of teaching to address the needs of all children.
Other therapies being offered:
Occupational Therapy- Occupational therapy practitioners have a holistic perspective, in which the focus is on adapting the environment and/or task to fit the person, and the person is an integral part of the therapy team. The therapists work on the following domains to make the child independent – fine motor skills, gross motor skills, self-help skills, attention- concentration , memory, etc.
AV Room- Interactive leaning sessions are held in the AV room which is well equipped with a LCD projector and large screen, CDs and DVDs on different subjects for different classes.
Speech and Language Therapy- This is an intervention service that focuses on improving child’s speech and abilities to enhance receptive and expressive language. It also includes articulation of speech sounds (phonemes), voice volume regulation, fluency, pitch and clarity of voice.
Admission to SEN Department
The SEN Department is dedicated to helping students with mild to moderate learning difficulties, in other words, students with special educational needs, provided that she/he is able to access the curriculum on offer. Students can enter the SEN programme at any time of the year or remain on it throughout their educational career. Our admissions policy requires parents to declare if their child or children have any special learning needs. Apart from normal admission tests, the school also requires standardised assessments (psycho-educational reports) to assess the needs of a child and to see if she/he would benefit from the programme. It is very important that prospective parents, who are applying for admission for a child with diagnosed or clearly known learning difficulties, disclose these details at the time of admission. If it becomes apparent that such needs were not disclosed, the school reserves the right to not admit the child after assessment if, the student’s needs cannot be met adequately by the school.
