Summary

The Association of People with Disability(APD) has a very strong vision and mission of promoting inclusive education for children with special needs in the state of Karnataka. Our founder Ms. N.S Hema believed in the philosophy that people with disabilities must learn to live in a world that has a majority of able-bodied people. 48 years ago, she pioneered the concept of Inclusive Education with the goal of mainstreaming children with disabilities into regular schools.

Challenge

Despite the Right to Education (RTE), many children with disability (CWD) are unable to receive an education because of financial hardship, inaccessibility in mainstream schools, and lack of sensitization to their needs. While there are policies to ensure education for all, implementation models are inadequate. Without comprehensive education, the future of underprivileged children with special needs is impaired. Most of our students with disabilities are from economically marginalized families

Solution

SHRADHANJALI INTEGRATED SCHOOL (SIS) of APD, founded in 1973, is a primary school up to ClassVII recognized under the SSLC Board. It has the capacity to educate up to 250 children. The school maintains an 80:20 ratio of children with disabilities and able-bodied to promote inclusion. As most children at SIS come from financially backward families, facilities like mid-day meals, books, uniforms, healthcare, rehabilitation, transportation & adapted learning techniques are provided.

Long-Term Impact

All children with disabilities will get good quality education, and receive rehabilitation and therapy from a multi-disciplinary team. All children with disabilities will become functionally independent by receiving wheelchairs, prosthetic aids, and mobility aids, which are custom-made in our workshop Parents, caregivers, and other stakeholders will get assisted to build their capacity to enable them to address the issues faced by their children with disabilities
