The resource room addresses the needs of children with Specific Learning Disability like Dyslexia, ADD (Attention Deficit Disorder) and other related learning difficulties. These learning difficulties arise due to perceptual, fine motor skills, emotional and behavioural deficits. Keeping these difficulties in mind, the teachers strive to work around the deficits of the children and improve their reading, comprehension, spelling and writing skills. They also work towards improving the underlying skills like working memory, sequencing, auditory discrimination, sitting tolerance and attention span. Currently children from UKG to Std 5 attend the remedial classes.
Individualized Educational Plan comprising of special worksheets, wordlists and activities like sequencing, brain gym exercises and word games are used. Group activities are also conducted once a week. The teachers focus on repetition and revisions to help the child remember better.
I am writing this e-mail with immense happiness and gratitude. To see Niharica improve slowly and steadily has given me a lot of confidence that she will do well in her academics even in her higher classes. She now reads very well and independently. She also remembers things better. Her writing has improved as well.
I would like to thank you mam for your patience, understanding and encouragement. I would also thank the school management for having such a set up where the kids can be given special attention to improve in the areas that they are weak in.
Mam, I am sure that with your guidance Niharica will have a wholesome growth. Thank you once again.
