The Spastics Society of Tamilnadu (SPASTN)

Integrated and Inclusive Education


In line with SPASTN's Mission, and to augment the implementation of the Person with Disabilities Act, The Spastics Society of Tamilnadu (SPASTN) has a networking with regular schools towards inclusion of children with disabilities in the mainstream.
SPASTN coordinates the Inclusive Education programmes of the State Government known as the District Primary Education Programme [DPEP] and Sarva Siksha Abhiyan [SSA] in the districts of Thiruvallur, Tiruvannamalai and in one block of Kancheepuram.
Children from the CBR programme have also been enrolled in regular schools. Integration and Inclusion commences right from the Balwadis that function in the rural community.

Even after inclusion of children with disabilities some of the school do not have trained staff or proper facilities for the person with disabilities.  Hence children with disabilities drop out from the mainstream school.  The Spastics Society of Tamilnadu (SPASTN) gives private coaching class to children with disabilities to complete their 10th and 12th STD public examinations with Regional Medical board concessions.

SPASTN trains the children with disabilities such as learning disabilities, Cerebral Palsy (CP),  Mild Mental Retardation (MR) and Autism. The  age group of these children can be between  14 to 20 years.
