Educational Program

There are various educational programs available for mentally challenged children. Based on the child’s ability, performance level and child’s need, educational services are to be provided. Appropriate services help them to progress at their own pace.

There are 2 types of services in general.
1. Educational Program for Educable Mentally Challenged Children.
2. Educational Program for Trainable Mentally Challenged Children.

In Shaaron Special School, we provide Educational Program for Trainable Mentally Challenged Children

Trainable mentally challenged children have little or no readiness for academic subjects and so they never develop usable skills in 3 R’s (reading, writing and arithmetic) so they need a different manner of training than that of educable mentally challenged children. Training should help them to live happily and safely in his or her social environment. The objective of the training program focuses on the following

1.Self-Care.
2.Social Adjustment.
3.Work Habits and Skills.
4.Speech and Language Development. and
5.Diversional Activities.

The Training program will vary from child to child according to their potential and developmental level of the child.
Below is the detailed education program & curriculum.
