Creating a Safe & Welcoming Environment for Students with Special Needs

A workshop to sensitize teachers of foundational course (Nursery – Grade2) in their approach towards students with special needs was organized on 17th April, 2023 at Amrita Vidyalayam.

Counsellor Mrs. Gayatri explained the traits and symptoms exhibited by students facing learning problems.  Teachers enacted role plays to help the co-teachers to understand the strategies to deal better with such children. There were activities and games to energise and encourage the participants. She demonstrated how children with disabilities benefit greatly from being with other children, and from receiving consistent care from adults. The learning outcome of the workshop is that children with special needs have to be looked at as what they could be, rather than what they are.
