School based Bridge Centers operated by our organization will ensure quality and need based academic support to most vulnerable children enrolled in school having unique and under defined disabilities. Need based support will help children catch up with the syllabus ensuring their long term retention in schools.
Once enrolled, children with learning and other multisensory disabilities often lose out on catching up with curriculum demand. The instructors also lack skills to teach the children with additional specific needs in a limited time frame increasing the possibilities of drop outs by the children. Aaina through this project will work with at least 60 such children who are at the verge of dropping out.
Bridge centers being operated by Aaina in 5 selected schools to provide extra academic support to children with learning and other impairments finding difficult to stay at par with the curriculum. Trained volunteers will be visiting the centers on daily basis. Two special educators will visit the bridge centers on rotation basis to provide specific academic support to the children.
