Going to School
Our approach to Learning is focused on these key areas:
- Daily Living skills – leading to personal autonomy*

- Parents are trained and teachers to work on specific adaptive behavior skills where teaching can take place in natural environment
Functional Academics – We teach skills which allow each student to succeed in real-life situations at home, school, work and in the community. Our functional academic and daily living skills have included transitional supports, shifting from preferred to non-preferred tasks, handling and working with money, following directions, awareness of safety, reading street signs and knowing who to approach if lost.
- Pre-requisite concepts
- Activities of daily living
- Social & Emotional skills
- Community orientation
- Skill oriented activities
- Art and craft etc…
Curriculum Streams: NIOS, OPEN BASIC EDUCATION, and State Board (for some children)
Each student has an Individualized Educational Plan or Individualized Transition Plan which captures the road map integrating the learning goals.
Information Communication Technology (ICT)
ICT is a key enabler for teaching and learning. We have a Computer lab and student friendly work stations for them to pursue lifelong learning in this information age. The inclusion of students who have experienced barriers to joining in mainstream education ICT training in SPASTN helps bridge the gap.
