Students progress summary
students progress summary **

  • Our children have steadily shown improvement in their performances through out the year.

    • Some have shown very significant improvements in areas like academic and pre-academic performances, motor functions and behavioral problems

    • while in some, the improvement was not as significant due to various problems like base line condition of the child, repeated medical illnesses, irregular timings at school, inadequate and/or improper inputs at home due to various types of limitations faced by parents.

  • See Case Studies document/ppt.

  • Attempting all-round growth as much as possible

    • During the last year, we have tried to develop our children as complete individuals, taking part in a variety of activities, caring for each other, taking initiatives and responsibilities and enjoying their work. We had a variety of activities and events all through the year apart from routine class room activities.

Students activities
students activities

  • Sports

    • In sports activities, our children participated in interschool games competition organized by Rotary club and also in District games organized by Ministry of youth and sports and they won many medals. This helped in tremendous boosting of their confidence and interest.

  • Cultural/Other

    • In cultural activities, we participated in interschool completion with 10 other special schools at Lucknow (organized by Pyssum day care centre, Lucknow) and our children won the running trophy

    • Like always, we celebrated rakshabandhan, Independence Day, janmashtami, teacher’s day, dusshera, Diwali, children’s day, Christmas day, basantpanchami and Holi. The children went for Zoo trip on the founder’s day, 23rd January.

Public awareness interaction
Public awareness/interaction

  • Multiple visits from students of different institutions with different motivations:

    • Class VII students of St. Mary’s convent school for an interactive session with children to know and understand them.

    • Class IX students of St. Mary’s convent school for an interactive session with children to know and understand them.

    • Class XII psychology students from DPS Kalyanpur for studying behaviour patterns of challenged children.

    • B.A. psychology student from PPN College to study the illnesses and factors causing childhood mental disabilities.

    • A P.hD student of psychology Dept (HSS) of IIT, Kanpur also had few interactive sessions with our children for collecting informations regarding their cognitive skills.

Public awareness interaction contd
Public awareness/interaction (contd.)

  • Visits/interactions with students of different institutions:

    • One M.Tech student of mech. Engg. Dept of IIT did a lot of behavioural analysis and experimentation with our children with aim of developing more specific and efficient teaching aids for special children. He is in final stages of preparing the model of one aid that he has designed.

  • Our annual craft sale was held this year at DIWALI BAZAR organized by ArpitaMahilaMandal (a local social welfare organization) and the diyas, envelopes, bracelets, pillow covers, wall hangings etc. were greatly appreciated by all.

Public awareness interaction contd1
Public awareness/interaction (contd.)

  • Rotary club organized inter school games for our children. Their effort has started a new and very healthy trend for the special children of Kanpur city.

  • Round Table Club sponsored children’s day celebration. The puppet show organized by them was highly appreciated and enjoyed by the children.

  • Lions club organized free dental checkup camp for the children and tree plantation day at our school.

  • Awareness of needs of special children and our work in the area has become known in the city and from time to time several individuals have come forward with promises of support (e.g. Mr. Harish Vaswani sponsored Christmas celebration).

P arents education
parents education

  • For the parents, we organized lecture on “handling problem behaviors” and “acupressure in neuromuscular ailments”.

  • Held a one week workshop for parents on “understanding and handling a challenged child”.

  • Many parents opted for counseling and meditation sessions this year (they were a little hesitant and resistant to discuss and accept their problems previously).

T eachers training
teachers training

  • A one week orientation lecture series was held for the teachers in April ‘10 apart from regular short discussions and lectures.

  • Two of the teacher’s have been selected for the B.Ed (special education) course and are pursuing it.

  • We have also recruited mothers of two special children as teachers in our centre and their wards are our beneficiaries. Inclusion of parents in the teaching team has made the team of our teachers more dedicated and more devoted to the cause.


Besides money, lack of space continued to pose challenges.

  • Lack of larger space is preventing further admissions.

  • One-to-one therapy (e.g. for attention deficit issues) is currently not possible due to non-availability of private quiet space.

  • Currently speech therapy is being conducted in entry area using hospital screen prevents full concentration and hence is sub-optimal.

  • Vocational activities (e.g. kitchen work) besides craft work is not possible.

  • Recreational activities (e.g. indoor games & activities that children could involve themselves in) is not possible for same reasons.

     Attempts to secure larger space were pursued vigorously through the year but nothing has materialized as yet.
